Ardal O’Hanlon, star of Death in Paradise ,Father Ted, and My Hero (BBC), continues to tour his acclaimed stand-up shows worldwide. Because he loves it. And it’s a compulsion. And the world is a funny place.

In an age of raging populism, MeToo, identity politics, the end of truth, the collapsing middle ground, peak avocado and £15 Gin and Tonics, and terrified of being on the wrong side of history, and desperate to prove that his gender, race, age and class don’t necessarily define him, Ardal is forced to saddle his high horse again and ride fearlessly into the culture wars (with a white hankie in his pocket just in case), comedy as ever being the best emergency response mechanism to extreme events there is.

Age rating: Recommended 16+

It is this calibre of offbeat observation, lateral thought and cheerful fatalism - always served up with the garnish of instinctively craftsmanlike timing and rhythm - that makes O’Hanlon’s set so very entertaining.
