Spaced Out Comedy and Socially Distanced Fun Continues at the Victoria Theatre Halifax
The Victoria Theatre Halifax has announced more Socially Distanced events this July.
There have been additions to the Spaced Out Comedy programme, and music events in the theatre’s main auditorium. The venue reopened to ticketholders on Friday 28 May 2021. And additional safety measures are in place, with socially distanced seating continuing until the theatre is able to return to full capacity.
Funnyman Tony Vino is the funny and familiar MC for the Thursday night ‘Spaced Out’ comedy events. And lined-up to appear are some of the finest comedians currently on the circuit.
Barbara Nice, who originally appeared on Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights and wowed the Britain’s Got Talent judges with semi-final performance in 2019, will be appearing on Thursday 1 July. Amanda Holden said of Barbara’s performance “Every single word that came out of your mouth was hysterical. Genius”. Barbara will be appearing with one of the country’s best comic storytellers Rob Rouse. Rob has appeared on numerous TV shows including 8 out of 10 cats and Spoons. He’s also been on The Friday Night Project, and Celebrity Juice.
Britain’s Got Talent star Mandy Muden and hilarious stand-up comedian Hal Cruttenden, as seen on Live at the Apollo and Have I Got News For You will be bringing the hilarity on Thursday 8 July. Stand-up comedian, radio and TV presenter and voice-over artist Tom Wrigglesworth will be joined by acclaimed character comedian Simon Brodkin, most famous for comedy character Lee Nelson on Thursday 22 July.
The Victoria Theatre’s hugely popular Dick & Liddy’s monthly Comedy Club also returns on Friday 30 July. Dick & Liddy’s Comedy Club has hosted legends of stand-up comedy and laughter such as John Bishop, Alan Carr, Ross Noble and Michael McIntyre early in their careers. Russell Kane also appeared at Dick & Liddy’s Comedy Club in May 2021 for the Victoria Theatre’s reopening night. Comedians for July’s comedy club are still to be announced – who will appear next!
“Much needed comic relief”
Music lovers can also enjoy some Spaced Out Socially Distanced music with One Night in Dublin on Friday 16 July. The show features the seven-piece live band The Wild Murphys and guarantees one glorious night of high-energy Irish Music. This show will be extra special to the venue as this will also be the first musical show to return to the Victoria Theatre in over 15 months!
Theatre lovers have been yearning to return to live entertainment venues. And the Spaced Out Season at the Victoria Theatre has provided that much needed comic relief and safe return. Those who’ve been to see a show have really enjoyed it.
Feedback from social media has been fantastic, and tickets to each of these events are now on sale at victoriatheatre.
