Comedian Andy Parsons is set to visit Scunthorpe with his brand new show Healing The Nation.
The star of Mock The Week will visit the town’s The Plowright Theatre on Saturday, 6 June.
Tickets are on sale now.
The comic is also known for his appearances on TV shows such as Live at the Apollo and QI – and repeated on Dave.
Describing his new show, Andy Parsons said: ‘It was 24th June 2016 and I found myself contemplating a supermarket meal deal. I only wanted a sandwich and I only needed a sandwich but given that I could get a snack and a drink for only 5p more it seemed financially irresponsible not to.
“I had spent so long pondering the EU Referendum result from the day before that I was now in a massive rush. The lad on the till scanned the first two items no problem but the third item he couldn’t get to scan at all. I thought this is going to be a nightmare – there was a queue building up and he looked like he was going to call the supervisor.
“Then to his credit, he tried to scan it one more time, it wouldn’t scan – so he went ‘bip’ himself and chucked it through. And it was at that moment I thought “oh we’ll be alright as a country we will”. And we will be alright. Trust me. I’m not a politician.”
Tickets for the show are on sale now via the theatre box office or visit www.scunthorpetheatres.co.uk
