REGINALD D HUNTER RESCHEDULES HIS UK AND IRELAND TOUR ‘BOMBE SHUFFLEUR’ FOR 2022
March 10, 2021
Reginald D Hunter will be back with a brand-new show, and there’s no time for niceties. Unafraid to tackle head on the subjects the rest of us skirt around. Reginald is the voice of his generation – searingly honest, brutally funny and uniquely placed to commentate on the unfolding meltdown of life as we know it.
More than 20 years since moving to the UK from the US, three-time Perrier Award-nominated Reginald has forged a reputation for delivering unadulterated comedy of the highest order. His TV appearances include Live at the Apollo, Have I Got News for You and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, whilst he drew widespread acclaim for his two series for the BBC, Reginald D Hunter’s Songs of the South and Reginald D Hunter’s Songs of the Border.

Sorry to announce Julian’s Spring tour dates for this year have to be postponed again, to Spring 2022. Ticket holders will be contacted by their ticket provider and automatically moved to the new dates. All details are on Julian’s website
Here is Paul in his very own TV show from the ‘90s – Paul Merton: The Series.
In Series 1, he poses such philosophical questions as What do people get up to in a Turkish bath? How can a visit to the dentist become a hazard to aircraft? What do cats dream about?
Series 2 sees him go from 19th century Transylvania to 20th century Stansted Airport taking in the golden years of Hollywood along the way. And all this before he’s cast adrift on the high seas with only Delia Smith for company!
So sit back, expect the unexpected and enjoy being taken to places you never knew existed.
