Andy Zaltzman’s Armchair Revolutionary Tour 2012
Arguably the biggest showbiz event since the invention of the spoken word all those years ago (albeit that it would require some explosively convincing arguing), Andy is taking his Armchair Revolutionary show on the road. On several roads, in fact. And some railways.
It will be a revised and updated version of the 2011 Edinburgh show. Contains facial nudity. Also contains the ground-breaking Satiricax 3000 Radio. And the Edith Piaf joke. No negotiations. It’s staying in. Plus a free bonus joke for all Bugle listeners (may also be audible to non-Bugle-listeners).
Here are the dates. See you all at all of them.

1. If tickets are not yet available through the venue’s website, then telephone the relevant box office and weep tears of uncontrollable misery until they sell you a ticket. Or look for them on a ticketing website, such as Ents24.com. There will probably be some available on the day anyway, although in defiance of more than a decade of tradition, some of my shows have sold out recently.
2. There might be some more dates to be added to this list. If there is currently no gig sufficiently close to your front door for you to be arsed to come, but you think that you might be able to be arsed to come if there was a show close enough to which to haul your sorry arse, and there is a venue you think might benefit from a balding man satirising stuff, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Bring your friends or friend and family or families. I’ve got two kids to feed. Come on. Let’s be honest, my career could be going better than it is, and my hairline is not going to get me on any TV panel shows. Do you seriously think podcasts and intermittent bits of radio are going to buy me a hot-tub with a full-sized snooker table in it? I need you people to come through for me. I will/won’t reward/aggravate you with some high-class/sub-execrable puns (delete according to preference).
