Expect topics including fatherhood, following your dreams, how to be a gentleman, the slow pain of death and the slow pain of slow cookers as Chris tries to navigate the rights and wrongs, dos, don’ts and definitely don’ts of life.

See him at Chelmsford’s Civic Theatre on June 6, Southend’s Palace Theatre on June 14, Norwich Playhouse on June 24 and the Ipswich Regent on July 27.

Tickets are available to SEE Tickets customers now, Ticketmaster users from 10am tomorrow and go on general sale Friday.
