JACK'S TAK­ING JOY ON THE ROAD

JACK Dee is re­turn­ing to the stand up stage for his first solo tour in six years.

His new UK tour, Off The Telly, in­cludes 38 dates and launches in Septem­ber.

The fa­mously grumpy co­me­dian says: “In these dif­fi­cult and un­cer­tain times peo­ple need hope – a ray of sun­shine to brighten their day ... and that’s very much where I come in.”

Tour de­tails avail­able from offthekerb.com/artist/jack-dee/

THE MERRY WIVES OF LEAD­ERS

ZOE Wana­maker and Croa­t­ian ac­tress Zrinka Cvitesic are to star in the world pre­miere of new stage drama Two Ladies by Dublin­born writer Nancy Har­ris.

The play fo­cuses on the first ladies of France and the US when they find them­selves alone in a side room as their hus­bands clash over an in­ter­na­tional cri­sis.

The pro­duc­tion will run at the Bridge House Theatre in London from Septem­ber 14. Go to brid­geth­e­atre.co.uk for ticket de­tails.

PI­RATES ON A SCREEN NEAR YOU

THE oper­atic di­rec­to­rial de­but of Vera Drake and Se­cret And Lies film direc­tor Mike Leigh can be seen on cinema screens this month.

His pro­duc­tion of English Na­tional Opera’s The Pi­rates Of Pen­zance fea­tures the fa­mous tongue-twist­ing pat­ter song “I am the very model of a mod­ern Ma­jor-Gen­eral” which has featured on ev­ery­thing from Fam­ily Guy and Frasier to The Mup­pet Show and Star Trek – The Next Gen­er­a­tion.

Orig­i­nally broad­cast live in 2015, there is another chance to see the Gilbert and Sullivan favourite on June 18. For cin­e­mas, visit eno.org/eno­screen
