Al Murray returns to York this autumn for his new show, One Man, One Guvnor. As the Pub Landlord, he will be spreading beer and cheer at the Grand Opera House on Sunday, November 16.
Tickets go on sale on Friday, April 11. Murray fans must be careful not to mix up this show with One Man, Two Guvnors, the touring version of the farce made famous by James Corden, which hits the Opera House next March.
Although Murray will be a guvnor short in his show, he is likely to pack them into the theatre, given that his post-modern publican previously sold out London’s O2 arena.
Murray began touring with Harry Hill and Frank Skinner and was awarded the Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Fringe festival in 1999 after previously being nominated three times.
The British bulldog that is The Pub Landlord is far removed from Oxbridge educated Murray. But his first theatre show, My Gaff, My Rules was short-listed for a Lawrence Olivier Award in 2002, and since then he’s gone from strength to strength.
Best known for his uncompromising observations and his copious consumption of beer, The Pub Landlord will be hitting his 20th anniversary this year. Needless to say that it is almost inevitable that he will be celebrating with a pint. Oh, and a glass of wine for the lady.
