Comedy Central to air Chris Ramsey's special

Stand-up show recorded in his home town

Chris Ramsey’s Just Happy To Get Out Of The House tour is to be broadcast on Comedy Central.

The stand-up show was filmed in front of a crowd of 6,500 fans at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena at the end of last year. It's close to a home town gig, as Ramsey was born in nearby South Shields.

The comic said: ‘When I started in stand-up comedy I never thought I’d even get the chance to consider doing an arena, let alone have it filmed for a special. 

‘It was a genuine joy and honour and without a doubt the best gig I have ever had in my entire life. It’s all downhill from here! I’m just glad it has been filmed so I’ve got something to back up my drunken ramblings from the corner of the pub when I’m 80.’

The special – based on the comedian laying out some of the rules of modern existence for his infant son – will air on Comedy Central on Saturday February 2 at 10pm. 

Ramsey has previously hosted his own show and the Stand Up Central showcase series for the broadcaster.

This is the show that celebrated the launch of Nick Helm's album in 2016, and has previously been unseen by anyone who was not in the O2 Forum Kentish Town that night.

With typical hyperbole, the show is described thusly: 'Under-rehearsed, under-prepared and under pressure, Nick and his band somehow managed to pull together the greatest show in the last 27 years of living memory. That show went down as a thing of legend, often spoken about by weary travellers around campfires, but thought to have been lost to the sands of time forever.'
