MPRACTICAL Jokers star Joel Dommett brings his debut tour to Stafford Gatehouse Theatre’s MET Studio next week.
In the show, which takes its name from the television series, Joel seeks revenge on a school enemy while doing some nunchucks in the process.
An exciting and fresh talent on the UK comedy circuit, he gained rave reviews for his debut solo Edinburgh show, Neon Hero, in 2011 and his second 2012 show Nunchuck Silver Medalist 2002.
He has enjoyed many different roles since starting his career in comedy, from being the face of MTV and presenting their daily news bulletins, to presenting Live In Chelsea, the live E4 after show to hit series Made In Chelsea.
He has also appeared in How to Survive a Disaster Movie, co-starred in the hugely successful Impractical Jokers and has numerous acting credits to his name, including Skins and Popatron. Joel has performed stand up on Russell Howard’s Good News and has recently appeared twice on Nick Grimshaw’s Sweat the Small Stuff.
The show is a mixture of the best bits from his last two Edinburgh shows.
He describes his style as “excitable anecdotes from a charming fellow who was the best friend of the funniest guy in school who is now an accountant”.
Having done so much television he is looking forward to hitting the road for the first tour.
“I cannot wait to be alone in places I have never been before. “Bordon - where is that? I have no idea but I'm going there.”
Among his credits is the dubious honour of performing as the warm-up act at a Justin Bieber concert.
“It was weird to stand next to the most famous man in the world, he said.
“I had the feeling he had the power to kill me so I tried to not say too much. I think we all wish we could do our jobs with our shirts off like him. Shirts off Fridays in the office would be great fun.
“Being a stand-up comedian is a pretty good dream job but if there is any space in One Direction I will happily jump in.”
Joel Dommett will be at The Met Studio at 8pm next Friday.
Tickets are £10 no concessions and the show is for over 16s only. Call the box office on 01785 254653 or see www.staffordgatehouse theatre.co.uk for booking.
