Comedian Patrick Kielty is currently taking his Edinburgh Festival stand-up show, Help, on tour around the county.

And he arrives here next month. The man from County Down in Northern Ireland performs at The Mill Arts Centre in Banbury at 8pm on Friday October 16.

But he can’t do it on his own. He needs help from the audience.

He needs you to bring him your lovers, your advice and a crayon. Kielty promises to do the rest.

The former psychology graduate and star of BBC1’s Live at the Apollo, Dave’s One Night Stand and host of BBC Radio 2’s New Comedy Awards, is attempting to write a modern rulebook for love, life and happiness.

On annoucing the tour Kielty said: “I’m really looking forward to getting out there on tour with my new show, Help.

“My first Edinburgh Festival run is of course going to be a highlight, and the fact that the audience gets involved every night means no two shows will be the same.

“Though what help they actually give me remains to be seen!”

Patrick, who recently announced that he and wife Cat Deeley are to have their first baby in spring next year. rose to fame in 1995 after appearing on Comic Releif’s St Patrick Day Stand Up Special after having earned a reputation in his native Northern Ireland for his fearless satirical routines.

The show is suitable for 16+. Tickets £16.50 from the box office on 01295 279002 or
