Micky Flanagan has announced extra UK tour dates for his comeback tour, with three additional dates set to take place in London. The stand-up comedian will take to the road with his If Ever We Needed It tour, travelling around the country before he concludes the tour with six shows at London’s O2 Arena.
For those familiar with the cockney’s previous brand of comedy, it will come as no surprise his latest content comes with the following warning: “The show covers Micky turning 60-who’d have thought it? As well as having sex with your glasses on, his school alumni and his ballbag. It’s fair to say it’s for over-16s.”
The 60-year-old shot to fame with The Out Out Tour in 2010, the phrase becoming synonymous with anyone planning on having a big night out. A tour spokesperson said: “He’s the man who gave Britain the “Out Out” phrase, which was used by Piccadilly Circus tube to put a smile on commuters’ faces as we came out out of Lockdown and went on to be used by TFL to encourage people back into theatres, restaurants and clubs. Micky cut his comedy teeth at these clubs and it clearly paid off.”
The initial tour announcement on February 17 came after the comedian previously confirmed warm up gigs in London, Newcastle and Manchester in February and March. Micky is known for his stand-up routines, including "The Perks of Peeping", "The Sh*ts Abroad", "The Crafty Cockney", "Tomato Sauce" and "Chicken Children".
