Comedian and TV star Jack Dee is heading to the Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC) stage to road test his new material.

Jack is taking to the road to try out new material for this forthcoming UK tour and will bring his ‘Work-In-Progress-Show’ to PAC on Sunday 19 May, 8pm.

The comedian is the star of TV sitcoms Bad Move, Lead Balloon and Josh as well as chair of the legendary Radio 4 show I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue.

Other credits include presenting Jack Dee’s Helpdesk on BBC Two and being the star of C4’s The Jack Dee Show, Jack Dee’s Saturday Night, Jack Dee’s Happy Hour and Jack Dee Live at the Apollo.

He said: “I’ve appeared in every single TV show with my name in the title.

“In these difficult and uncertain times people need hope – a ray of sunshine to brighten their day. And that’s very much where I come in.”

This will be the first time that Jack has appeared at PAC, and he follows in the footsteps of a number of renowned comedians who have used the popular, intimate venue to try out new material.

PAC director Janet Farmer said: “Jack follows in a long line of comedians who have tried new material at the venue including John Bishop, Henning Wehn, Sarah Millican and Dylan Moran.

“The venue has built up a national reputation on the touring circuit both for its programming and for the intimate atmosphere of the venue’s auditorium and studio.”
