Derby LIVE has announced an additional performance of Mike McClean’s comedy show at the Guildhall Theatre on Sunday, January 10, at 7.30pm, due to popular demand.

Audience favourite Mike McClean who has also been starring for the past month as Wishee Washee in Aladdin at Derby Arena, showcases a different side of his talent for three nights of fantastic comedy, from January 8-10.

Mike and friends will be putting on an evening of top class comedy which will have everyone laughing and rolling about on the floor. As part of the evening Mike will also perform his alternative mind-reading act.

Mike has also appeared as a TV presenter and actor on the Big Breakfast, Richard & Judy, The Office and more recently playing Fin’s Dad in My Big Fat Diary on E4.

The show has been described one reviewer as a ruder, funnier version of Derren Brown.

McClean was one of the audience favourites in the recent production of Aladdin at Derby Arena, which finished on January 3. He is a panto veteran on the Derby stage and has also wowed audiences in the area with his stand-up shows.

Mike McClean will perform at Derby’s Guildhall Theatre from Friday, January 8– Sunday, January 10.

Tickets are priced at £15 and can be purchased through the Derby LIVE box office on 01332 255800 or online at derbylive.co.uk

n Comedian Mark Thomas is back in the area next month.

One of the comedy world’s favourite mischief-maker, Mark Thomas is heading your way soon as he brings his 2015 total sell-out Fringe show Trespass to Nottingham’s Lakeside Arts Centre on Thursday, February 25.

In the show, he will be asking the question: “If the ramblers of the 1930s were here now, what would they do to open up the cities?

“How do we turn the skyscrapers and corporate squares into our playgrounds?”

Inspired by the mass trespass of Kinder Scout in 1932, Mark turns his eye to how the government have sold off the majority of our communal spaces, from playing fields to public rights of way, setting out to try and carve a small space in the urban world where mischief and random chance can lurk.

Ticket details to see Trespass performed at the Lakeside Arts Centre are availablel by calling the box office on 01158467777.
