You are spoiled for comedy in Hull this weekend with a one-man show and a collection of funny folk coming to two venues in the city.
We will also be sipping beer on a brewery tour, seeing a beautiful reimagining of a classic fairy tale and voting in a photography competition.
Here are 5 things to do in Hull this weekend.
1. Rob Beckett
Saturday 19 October
Dubbed “the mouth of the south”, this British stand-up comedian is a busy man. Perhaps best-known from BBC One’s All Together Now and Channel 4’s 8 Out Of 10 Cats, he also appears on (deep breath …) BBC One’s Live At The Apollo, Would I Lie To You?, BBC Two’s Mock The Week, ITV’s Play To The Whistle, ITV2’s Celebrity Juice and Sky’s A League of Their Own.
Rob Beckett will be visiting the Bonus Arena Hull on 19 October 2019 as part of his brand new stand up show.
It’s been a busy few years for the Mouth of the South and he’s coming to see you to fill you in and make you laugh.
