Comedian Alan Carr has announced his first tour in four years, set to bring Not Again, Alan to venues across the UK in the autumn of 2020.

Carr is set to delve into his life during that time, having married at a star-studded ceremony, had some issues at border control, spent some time as a farmer, and as an accidental anarchist.

Described by the Evening Standard as “sheer entertainment” and by The Sunday Telegraph as “bellyachingly funny”, Carr will launch his latest tour in Dunfermline on 5 September 2020, running through to York on Saturday 19 December 2020.

How to get Alan Carr tickets early
Alan Carr tickets for select dates will be available through presale from 10:00 on Tuesday 28 January 2020.

Carr rose to fame during the early ’00s, emerging out of the Manchester comedy scene to take on host duties on Channel 4’s The Friday Night Project and subsequently his own Alan Carr: Chatty Man.

A multi-award winner, Carr most recently sat on the panel on the inaugural UK version of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

His live career has seen him tour across areans in 2007, 2011 and 2015, most recently performing his Yap, Yap, Yap! show to fans across the country.
