Comedian Sarah Millican is spending a fourth night at the Ipswich Regent.

Only a few tickets are left for her June 28-30 Control Enthusiast shows so she’s added another date on June 27. Tickets go on sale at 10am tomorrow (Dec 21).

These include Jim Davidson, January 21; John Bishop, January 23-25; Ed Byrne, February 7; Jason Manford, February 15; Tim Vine, March 6; Stewart Lee, March 22; Dara O’Briain, March 28-29; Joe Lycett, April 7; Iain Stirling, May 11; Bill Bailey, June 4-5; Chris Ramsey, July 27; Dave Gorman, October 25; Ross Noble, November 14; and Jason Manford, December 5.
