After a six year absence from stand-up, he’s back, agonizing over the slightest of annoyances and misdemeanors.

Comedian Jack Dee will be coming to the White Rock Theatre, Hastings, on November 13.

Known for his trademark deadpan humour, Jack Dee has appeared on television shows including QI, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, 8 out of 10 Cats and Have I Got News For You.

He has also hosted Radios 4’s legendary I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue, co-written and starred in four series of BBC 2’s sitcom Lead Balloon and is currently writing his memoirs, Thanks For Nothing which he modestly dedicated to himself - “Without whom none of this would have been possible”.

Why is he touring again? “I want to spend less time with my family” says Jack.

Born in Kent, Jack grew up in Winchester. His first gig was an open mic performance at the Comedy Store in 1986.

In 1991 he won Best Stage Newcomer at the British Comedy Awards, and has since had sell-out shows at many high-profile venues.

In 2001, he won Celebrity Big Brother, and earlier this year joined fellow celebrities in Through Hell and High Water, a Comic Relief challenge.

The show at the White Rock Theatre starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are £22.
