They say all political careers end in tears. In Brandreth's case it's tears of laughter as the actor, author, ex-MP, One Show reporter and star of QI, Have I Got News For You and Countdown is back on tour with his new show celebrating all things theatrical.

Without hesitation or repetition (and just a touch of deviation), Just a Minute regular Gyles delivers a dazzling evening of wit, wisdom, high drama, low comedy, and hilarious name-dropping.
