Sarah Millican Bobby Dazzler UK Tour
12th and 13th of November 2021
The comedian returns to York Barbican for the first time since 2018 on 12 & 13 November 2021.
The hilarious Sarah Millican has announced that she is back on tour with a Bobby Dazzler of a new stand-up show in 2021 & 2022 across the UK and Ireland.
In this, her sixth international tour, you’ll learn about what happens when your mouth seals shut, how to throw poo over a wall, trying to lose weight but only losing the tip of your finger, a surprisingly funny smear test, and how truly awful a floatation tank can be.
Sarah has spent the last year writing jokes and growing her backside. She can’t wait to get back on the road and make you laugh in her first return to York Barbican since her previous sell-out tour, Control Enthusiast.
Sarah Millican has also made multiple appearances on our television screens, including British panel shows such as 8 Out of 10 Cats, Have I Got News for You, Mock the Week, Would I Lie to You?, QI and Never Mind the Buzzcocks. In 2019, she began presenting the comedy panel show Elephant in the Room for BBC Radio 4, featuring panellists sharing their life experiences and testing who is closest and farthest from the national average.

In December 2015, he became the first British astronaut to visit the International Space Station to conduct a spacewalk (and run a marathon!) whilst orbiting Earth.
Now, join him on an epic and thrilling journey to the International Space Station as part of his first-ever UK tour. Tim will be your personal guide through life in space, with unprecedented access, breath-taking photographs, and never-before-seen incredible footage.
It’s a fascinating insight into what it’s really like to be an astronaut; from training to launch, spacewalk to re-entry, Tim reveals the secrets, the science and the everyday wonders of how and why humans journey into space. Sharing his passion for aviation, exploration and adventure, this is your chance to spend an evening with one of the world’s greatest living astronauts, and to rediscover the wonder of the place we call home.
“It’s impossible to look down on Earth from space and not be mesmerised by the fragile beauty of our planet” – Tim Peake
