British comedian Alan Carr will make his Vancouver Island debut with a show at the McPherson Playhouse in November.
Carr, 46, who hosted the popular U.K. talk show Alan Carr: Chatty Man, for 16 seasons will appear in Victoria on Nov. 8 as part of his seven-date Regional Trinket tour of Canada. Tickets are $56.50 and go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through the Royal McPherson box office (250-386-6121) or rmts.bc.ca.
Carr (who is not related to fellow U.K. comic Jimmy Carr) rose to fame as the host of Channel 4’s Chatty Man, which welcomed guests ranging from Gordon Ramsay and Taylor Swift to Bradley Cooper and Adele. The latter officiated Carr’s 2018 wedding to partner Paul Drayton, from whom Carr is now divorced.
He has written two best-selling autobiographies, Look Who It Is! and Alanatomy, and stars in the upcoming sitcom, Changing Ends, which he wrote about growing up as a gay teenager in Northampton, England during the 1980s.
