Joel Dommett who is currently battling it out for supremacy in the popular TV reality show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! will be appearing at Richmond’s Georgian Theatre Royal next year.
The comedian is one of the remaining contestants in the sixteenth series of the ITV show, watched nightly by more than 10 million viewers.
Dommett will be bringing his solo show Joel Dommett: LIVE to The Georgian Theatre Royal on Saturday 20 May, which is the only venue in the North East for the celebrity’s 2017 tour.
“We are delighted to be hosting this event at our historic theatre,” said Theatre Chief Executive Clare Allen. “Dommett is one of the UK’s most energetic and exciting young comedians and, of course, he has become a household name in recent weeks with his impressive and engaging performance in the jungle.
Joel came onto the comedy scene in 2007 and has never looked back. After receiving great critical acclaim for his Edinburgh Fringe shows and being crowned five-time winner of the Comedy Café Competition, he has gone on to appear in numerous television shows including; Impractical Jokers (BBC3), Reality Bites (ITV2), Russell Howard's Good News (BBC), Drunk History (Comedy Central), Bring The Noise (Sky1s) and has performed in acting roles for Popatron (BBC2) and Skins (E4).
The Richmond show date has been released just ahead of the Theatre’s main Spring and Summer Season and demand for tickets is expected to be exceptional.
Tickets cost £15 (£10 for concessions) and are available from the Theatre’s Box Office on 01748 825252 or via the website: www.georgiantheatreroyal.co.uk
