Funnyman Andy ready to raise the roof at the Palace

ANDY Parsons will be Live and Unleashed at the Palace Theatre next week.

The ‘Mock The Week’ comedian will treat audiences to a two hour show as part of his Spring tour: Live and Unleashed – But Naturally Cautious.

Andy, who has built up a following as a regular on the BBC2 progamme, is returning to his first love: stand-up comedy. He will be in Redditch on Wednesday (April 29).

He said: “I’m very much looking forward to coming back.

I’ve been to the town once before and got lost on the ring road but when we managed to find the theatre it was lovely.”

The comedian said he was excited to be back on the road.

He added: “It can be a pain in the bum getting to the venues and Ginsters pasties can get a bit tedious but it’s all worth it when you’re up there doing the show. It’s very enjoyable.”

The tour, which has been running since February, is constantly evolving to reflect social events and Andy will give some political analysis during the show in the run up to the election.

Generally speaking, the night will be split into two halves.

The first will see Andy estimate his worth as a human being and find there is very little left of any merit.

He will then proceed to build himself back up through communal spirit, so the show ends on a high along with Andy’s own predicitions of what we can expect in a British future.

Used to normally fighting for a say on ‘Mock The Week’, Andy is excited to be back on stage solo.

He said: “It’s nice to have one microphone without having seven other comedians rushing in front of you to grab it.

“It’s a real luxury. It’s a great thing to be doing. I feel like the conductor of the best party. Let’s hope we have a great party in Redditch.”
