Comedian Dara O’Briain returns to the Ipswich Regent next year with his new show Voice of Reason.

The Mock The Week host is no stranger to Suffolk, having wowed audiences in the town in 2015 he starring at Latitude this summer.

We described his last tour, Crowd Tickler, as fast, funny and often insightful and Dara himself as a force of nature when not chained to his many panel show host desks.

He will be here on March 29. Tickets go on sale to ticket alert subscribers at 10am tomorrow and general sale from 10am Friday.

He’s one of several top comedians heading to the Regent and Corn Exchange over the coming months.

Other acts include Griff Rhys Jones, October 26; Milton Jones, November 10; Rob Brydon, November 15; Russell Brand, December 4, Greg Davis, December 5-6; Jim Davidson, January 21, Ed Byrne, February 7; Jason Manford, February 15; Joe Lycett, April 7 and Sarah Millican, June 28-30.

Eastern Angles Christmas show has a reputation for creating affectionate spoofs of cultural classics. Arts editor Andrew Clarke spoke to producer Tim Bell about having fun with The Ladykillers.

DanceEast commissioned a real Christmas treat from choreographer Jane Hackett when they asked her to develop her idea of turning Mary Norton’s much-loved children’s novel The Borrowers into a dance-theatre production.

The Ladykillers is one of British cinema’s golden classics – an Ealing comedy that appears to be rosy on the outside but as soon as you dig beneath the surface its humour is as black as coal. This Christmas Eastern Angles and Shanty Theatre have decided to give this dark caper movie a modern and a local make-over.

If you haven’t sent Santa your Christmas list yet, pop tickets for this festive-fuelled fairytale on it first.

It’s not Christmas without a visit to Red Rose Chain’s The Avenue Theatre. We spoke to writer and director Joanna Carrick and actors Emma Swan, Darren Latham and Ryan Penny about The Elves and The Shoemaker.

A great panto starts from the moment the audience enters the auditorium and starts looking at the set laid out before it. Arts editor Andrew Clarke talks to designer David Shields about the art of creating a larger-than-life panto world

Charlotte Smith-Jarvis says Greg Davies, live in Ipswich as part of the You Magnificent Beast tour, is one of the funniest stand-ups she’s seen.

Robert Wright throughly enjoys Dick Whittington, this year’s panto offering at Bury St Edmunds Theatre Royal
