Gyles Brandreth Rescheduled Break A Leg Tour

After a hugely successful five-star-rated run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2018 and a sell-out 2019 UK tourGyles Brandreth has rescheduled his one-man show, Break A Leg!, back on the road and to a whole host of new venues across the UK from September until June 2022.

Actor, author, ex-MP, broadcaster, and now acclaimed stand-up comedian, Brandreth’s show is a riotous celebration of all things theatrical. This is Brandreth unleashed on the stars he’s known and the theatre stories that have made him laugh– and occasionally cry. Without hesitation or repetition (but just a touch of deviation), in Break A Leg! joyful Just A Minute regular Gyles delivers a dazzling two hours of wit, wisdom, high drama, low comedy and hilarious name dropping.

They say that all political careers end in tears, but in the case of Gyles Brandreth, it’s tears of laughter as his glittering career simply goes from strength to strength.

He won the Most Popular Show At The Fringe Award when he first took a show to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and received a record number of five star reviews every time he’s appeared at the Pleasance, with even more Sold Out signs appearing outside venues during the first leg of his UK tour earlier this year. So, book now for these dates before he sells out again!

Gyles Brandreth is a writer, broadcaster, actor, former MP and Lord Commissioner of the Treasury, now Chancellor of the University of Chester and one of Britain’s most sought-after award ceremony hosts and after-dinner speakers.  A star of Celebrity Gogglebox, a veteran of QI and Have I Got News For You, a reporter on The One Show and a regular on Just a Minute, on stage he has appeared in pantomime, in Shakespeare, as Lady Bracknell in The Importance of Being Earnest and in his own musical revue in London’s West End.  His many books include seven Victorian murder mysteries featuring Oscar Wilde and Arthur Conan Doyle as his detectives, and two recent best-sellers: The 7 Secrets of Happiness and his celebration of good English, punctuation, spelling and grammar, Have You Eaten Grandma?  His latest book, coming out in September 2019, is about the power, pleasure and importance of learning poetry by heart: Dancing by the Light of the Moon
