The Theatre Arena was full of problems as Jack Dee and his team of comedians tackled the audience’s issues in a hilarious 75 minute panel show.

Joining the comedian on his help desk was Jeremy Hardy, Seann Walsh, Katherine Ryan and Roisin Conaty as the team of five joked about camping and last night’s thunderstorms that swept through Henham Park.

The audience queued for more than an hour as 550 people packed out the theatre tent, with no spare seats going, and they were treated as the show ran for 15 minutes longer than it should have, with no one complaining.

Those in the audience helped make the show, as they gave their problems to the panel to give advice.

All bases were covered as topics that came up included relationship issues, anger with singing vicars and advice on how to remember the last line of the joke.

There was also time for confessions, including one 11-year-old boy who confessed to the audience, and his mum, that his phone had mysteriously broken.

Although the majority of the resolutions offered weren’t sound advice, all answers given were well received in a show that wouldn’t have looked out of place in the Comedy Arena.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony Award-winning musical Sunset Boulevard is coming to the Ipswich Regent for a week-long run next year.

Take the loveable puppets from Sesame Street, throw them into adult life – and you’ll end up in the quirky, irreverent – and hilarious - world of Avenue Q.

Our pick of the region’s theatre, comedy and stage shows over the next few days.

A variety of top comedians are playing Suffolk and Essex theatres in 2017 so book your tickets today and get ready to chortle, chuckle, titter and guffaw at some great stand-up shows.

A slice of Broadway and West End musical theatre has come to Stowmarket this week.

For those expecting a nostalgic regurgitation of the best elements of the classic TV sit-com of the same name then audiences should raise their sights and applaud the fact that scriptwriter and playwright Michael Aitkens has delivered something immeasurably better.

A spirit of revolution will be reflected in the performances at Suffolk’s largest multi-arts festival this summer.

Despite the prospect of turning 50 next year - yes, really - Jason Donovan is as busy as ever appearing in Million Dollor Quartet and planning a reflective solo show.

Three top comedians will perform at an event in Ipswich to raise money for the town’s homeless and needy.
