First dates in eight years

Rob Brydon is to tour for the first time in eight years.

The Would I Lie To You? host has announced an initial 14 dates for his I Am Standing Up tour for March 2017.

They are his first dates since a national tour and West End run of 2008/9, subsequently released on a DVD.

Earlier this year, Brydon starred opposite Kenneth Branagh in The Painkiller in the West End, and two weeks ago he headed out to Spain to film a third series of The Trip with Steve Coogan – taking a Britanny Ferry even though he advertises rivals P&O on TV.

The series will be shown on Sky Atlantic, probably next year, rather than its original home of BBC Two.

Tickets for I Am Standing Up are on sale now here.
