Top comedian Rob Brydon has lined up a date at the Ipswich Regent this year for his first stand-up tour since 2009.

The Welsh comic actor will be bringing his tour, I’m Still Standing, to the Regent on Wednesday, November 15.

The Would I Lie to You? presenter and Gavin and Stacey star will be completing his first UK tour since he sold out venues nationwide in 2009, with tickets expected to go quickly.

The comic actor, who is also known for The Trip with Steve Coogan, is the latest in a string of top comedians to announce an appearance at the venue, with German comic Henning Wehn, fellow Welshman Griff Rhys-Jones, Milton Jones and Russell Brand among those lined up this Autumn.

Tickets are £28 and go on sale from 10am on Friday (August 4).

It seems that the era of the long-running West End show is coming to an end. The trend is now for short-term engagements which, Arts editor Andrew Clarke says, is a good thing for our cultural economy and offers greater opportunities for new work
