Comedy giants come to Derby Arena in 2018
Derby LIVE is bringing audiences five giants of British comedy to Derby Arena this year, with John Bishop, Ed Byrne, Russell Brand, Sarah Millican and Jason Manford all making Derby a stop on their tours.
Next up Derby Arena will be hosting award-winning comedian and writer Ed Byrne on Friday 20 April at 8pm. In his latest show, Spoiler Alert, Ed Byrne asks the question ‘Are we all spoiled?’ and audiences can watch Byrne take the question, turn it upside down and shake until the funny falls out. His live work has built up legions of fans and he remains the observational stand-up to see and is not to be missed. Tickets are available now at £26, suitable for age 16+.
On Sunday 1 July, at 8pm Sarah Millican will perform in front of a sold-out crowd at Derby Arena. Her fifth tour, Control Enthusiast, will mark ten years since Sarah established herself as one of the leading lights of the British Comedy scene by winning the Best Newcomer Award at the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe. In the subsequent years, Sarah has gone on to host three series of her critically acclaimed BBC2 series The Sarah Millican Television Programme, for which she received two BAFTA nominations and has become a familiar face on primetime shows such as QI, Live at the Apollo and The Royal Variety Performance.
Tickets can be purchased through the Derby LIVE Box Office on 01332 255800 or online at derbylive.co.uk.
