Sarah Millican’s regional Bobby Dazzler tour dates

-

Sarah Millican has announced a new stand-up tour and is coming to a theatre near you. The comedian and writer has lined up more than 100 dates for her Bobby Dazzler Tour.

This is Sarah’s sixth internatio­nal tour and she said this time you will learn about what happens when your mouth seals shut, trying to lose weight but only losing the tip of your finger and how truly awful a floatation tank can actually be.

“I have spent the last year writing jokes and growing my backside. I can’t wait to get back on the road and make you laugh,” she said.

Millican won the comedy award for Best Newcomer at the 2008 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

In February 2013 she was listed as one of the 100 most powerful women in the United Kingdom by Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour.

In the same year she married fellow comedian Gary Delaney.

Her first book, How to Be Champion, was released in 2017, and Millican has performed on various tours mainly throughout the United Kingdom over the years – selling out fast especially at venues in her native north east.

Millican was born and brought up in South Shields and worked as a civil servant at a job centre until the age of 29.

She was married in 1997, divorced in 2004, and moved back in with her parents for two and a half years.

Her early material was based on her marriage and subsequent break-up from Andrew.

Millican has appeared as a panellist on 8 Out of 10 Cats, Have I Got News for

You, Mock the Week, You Have Been Watching, Would I Lie to You?, QI and Never Mind the Buzzcocks, and as a performer at The Secret Policeman’s Ball 2008 and on 4 Stands Up.

She has also appeared a few times as a contestant on the Channel 4 crossover game show 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown which is hosted by Jimmy Carr.

She was featured in

the Manchester edition of Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, which was broadcast in June 2009, made an appearance on the third episode of David Mitchell’s panel show The Bubble in March 2010 and has been a guest on six episodes of Frank Skinner’s Opinionate­d.

She provided vocal work to the BBC’s natural history footage for Walk on the Wild Side, alongside fellow comics Rhod Gilbert, Jon Richardson, Isy Suttie and Gavin Webster.
