It was announced today that critically acclaimed stand-up comedian Chris Ramsey’s brand new 106 date nationwide tour Chris Ramsey Live 2018: The Just Happy To Get Out Of The House Tour, will be filmed for broadcast in front of a very special homecoming crowd of 6500 fans at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena on 3rd November. Following his first ever headline show at the venue last year, this will be Chris’ first proper Arena show filmed as a stand-up special for TX.
The show encompasses some of the best advice ever to be recorded in the history of the world (hopefully), as Chris sets out some of the rules of modern existence for his infant son. Expect fatherhood, the slow slow pain of death, the slow slow pain of slow cookers, and how to laugh in the face of darkness as Chris tries to navigate the rights and wrongs, dos, don’ts and definitely don’ts of life.
Chris declared,” I only want it filmed so that I have some evidence to back up my drunken ramblings from the corner of the pub when I’m 80.”
Away from the live stage, Chris has appeared on TV hosting The Chris Ramsey Show, and Stand Up Central (Comedy Central) I’m a Celebrity: Extra Camp (ITV2) and Virtually Famous (E4), as well as performing on the Royal Variety Performance (ITV), Live at the Apollo (BBC1) and as a regular on Celebrity Juice (ITV2). He also starred as Jack in two series of critically-acclaimed sitcom Hebburn (BBC2), co-starring Vic Reeves and more recently alongside his wife Rosie on Married to a Celebrity and Parenting for Idiots (Channel 4). Chris has over 400,000 followers on Twitter.
