Alexei Sayle


This event has past.

Following the huge success of his popular Radio 4 show ‘Imaginary Sandwich Bar’, alternative comedy legend Alexei Sayle is returning to stages across the UK in 2020 with his first stand-up tour in 7 years.

Sayle has been performing stand-up for forty years since the day he invented modern comedy. He’d like to stay at home with his cat but he’s still really funny, dangerously political and wildly energetic so he feels compelled to do a live tour. The least you can do is to come and see him.

Please note that latecomers will not be admitted.

Presented by Phil McIntyre Live Ltd

‘Master of standup comedy’ The Guardian

‘Sayle’s humour has a streak of anarchy that sets him apart’ The Times
