Sara Pascoe’s hit Edinburgh Fringe and sell out West End show LadsLadsLads is coming to Colchester Arts Centre this year.

It’s the multi-award-winning comedian’s most honest, heartfelt and personal piece to date. Full of jokes, hope and white wine, it’s described as the thinking person’s stag do; although she’d rather you didn’t bring a polite friend, your mum, someone you hope to seduce or a book for the interval.

The show visits Colchester on November 24. Tickets go on sale February 1.

It follows the success of the sold out Animal tour, inspired by Sara’s acclaimed book of the same name. She’s currently writing her second book, Sex Power Money and her forthcoming BBC Radio 4 series, Modern Monkey.

Over the last year Sara has starred on Let’s Sing and Dance for Comic Relief, adapted Pride and Prejudice for the Nottingham Playhouse / York Theatre Royal and filmed a solo stand-up special for the BBC.

She’s also hosted an episode of Live at the Apollo and appeared on Frankie Boyle’s New World Order, Have I Got News For You, QI and Travel Man.
