One of the country’s best-loved and most popular comedians, Paddy McGuinness is coming to The Met in September and October with three intimate work in progress dates ahead of his first major stand up tour in over eight years. Paddy’s long-awaited return will see him perform across the UK and Ireland in 2024 and 2025.

Paddy McGuinness is a much-loved presence on British TV, from his legendary acting roles in Phoenix Nights, Max and Paddy and The Keith and Paddy Picture Show to presenting primetime TV shows such as Take Me Out and BBC’s Top Gear, as well as having sold out hundreds of venues across the country on his stand-up tours. In 2021 Paddy released his acclaimed autobiography My Lifey and is now raring to get back to where he belongs – on stage, making people laugh, with his hotly anticipated show.

Paddy said: “It’s been eight years since my last tour and there’s lots of things to laugh about! I’m looking forward to getting back in front of a live audience, along with running the gauntlet of cancel culture, click bait and fake news!”
