THE Thick of It star Chris Addison returns to the Theatre Royal in Winchester with his standup show The Time is Now Again on Sunday, June 10.

He is renowned for his energetic and physical performances that enhance his comic interpretations of modern life.

In November 1995 he won the City Life North-West Comedian of The Year contest and has built a strong profile in the world of stand-up comedy.

He has also appeared in the big screen version of The Thick of It, In The Loop, new movie Apocalypse 2012 as well as TV shows Mock The Week and Have I Got News For You.

Tickets for his show in Winchester cost £21.

Also coming to the Theatre Royal Winchester, on June 14, is Francesca Martinez with her new stand-up show What the XXXX is Normal?

Born with cerebral palsy, she refers to herself as the ‘wobbly’ comedian whose material is mined from her experience of living with a physical disability.

Her show is for anyone who has ever struggled to fit in, felt different or wondered what normal means.
