COMEDIAN Chris McCausland is coming to Didcot next year with his “Speaky Blinder” tour.

The “rapidly rising comedy star” will be at the Cornerstone Arts Centre in Station Road on September 30 and October 1.

The show is about Mr McCausland’s life and family with loads of other “nonsense thrown in for good measure”.

He has appeared on Live at the Apollo three times, and his third, latest appearance was hosting the renowned stand-up show.

Mr McCausland also recently made his debut appearance on none other than the Royal Variety Performance, which aired in December, as well as on celebrity editions of favourites such as Mastermind, The Chase, Antiques Road Trip and Blankety Blank.
