Roy Walker, the much-loved star of TV’s Catchphrase, will be saying what he sees what he comes to Solihull Arts Complex next month.
The Belfast-born comedian and presenter comes to town on Friday 23 April with what promises to be an interesting show about his long career as an entertainer.
Roy shot to national prominence in 1977 on the TV show New Faces, when he received the highest ever score for a comedian, before becoming even more well-known as host of ITV show Catchphrase.
Over the past two years he has won a whole new fanbase through his regular Carpark Catchphrase feature on Chris Moyles’ BBC Radio 1 Breakfast show and thanks to his appearance alongside Peter Kay in Phoenix Nights.
Roy has also become something of a cult hit, regularly being booked to play universities around the country where he often to plays to 2,000 screaming students at a time.
As well as all that, last summer he made a successful debut at the Edinburgh Festival, with a show that drew much critical acclaim. He is team captain on Radio 4’s comedy quiz Act Your Age and hosts his TV Bloomers and Game Show Moments shows.
Roy’s Solihull performance is in the theatre at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £17 (£16 concessions) and are available from the Box Office on 0121 704 6962.
