BRITISH comedy stars Phil Cool and Richard Digance have just announced a Leeds date at the city’s newest venue this autumn as part of their UK tours.

The pair will appear at The Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre at Northern Ballet’s home on Quarry Hill, the city’s newest theatre, with 250 seats, making it the perfect intimate venue for stand-up comedy.

Comedian and impressionist Phil Cool will be the first to perform, on Friday November 4.

Without doubt one of the most original and unique talents to come out of Britain, Phil Cool is winning new audiences thanks to YouTube clips of his 1980s TV shows.

The original Mr Rubberface, Phil can metamorphose with ease from the Pope to Sylvester Stallone, Tina Turner to Forrest Gump, Jack Nicholson to Bugs Bunny and David Attenborough to a seahorse.

Award-winning folk entertainer Richard Digance, who sprung to fame in the 70s and 80s, will perform his show on Saturday November 12.

Richard appeals to all ages by singing his own songs, telling fun stories, while throwing in his popular poems and legendary audience participation sing-songs for good measure.

Join him for a wonderful evening of brilliant self-penned comic songs, introduced with panache, style and outrageous humour.

Tickets for both shows cost £16, available from www.northern ice or 0113 220 8008.
