Latitude favourite Tim Minchin will return to the county for his upcoming 2019 tour.

The comedian is set to perform at 16 venues across the UK, kicking off with the Ipswich Regent on Tuesday October 15.

Minchin, who is originally from Australia, is best known for his musical comedy and has released six albums.

Minchin’s unique style sees him incorporate piano playing and witty lyrics into his stand-up routines.

He has a background in theatre and is the composer and lyricist of the Olivier and Tony award-winning Matilda the Musical based on the book by Roald Dahl.

He also starred as Judas in the recent rival of Jesus Christ Superstar! and his new musical Groundhog Day has recently transferred from the West End to Broadway.
