Tickets for the two dates at the Beggar’s Theatre in Millom sold out in an hour-and-a-half after they went on sale at noon yesterday.

The host of Channel 4 show Chatty Man will be performing his show, Work in Progress, for two nights on Friday February 28, and Saturday March 1 at the Market Square venue.

Other comedians to play the venue have included Jon Richardson, Josh Widdecombe, Patrick Monahan and Bill Bailey.

Jakki Moore, owner of Moore Arts: Millom, which runs the theatre said: “The demand for tickets has been so high that it only took an hour and a half for both nights to sell out, which is amazing. We now have enough demand for another show to be added, which has been put forward to Alan Carr’s team.”

Ms Moore added: “I knew we would sell out because we sold all the tickets for Bill Bailey in three hours and Ed Byrne took half a day and they were just one night shows, so to sell both Alan Carr shows so quickly in that space of time is fantastic.”
