Dry-witted comedian Jon Richardson will be bringing his new stand-up show The Knitwit to the Ipswich Regent later this year.

Famed for being the most worried man in Britain, Jon will be concerning himself with such burning issues as: Will the recycling be put out on the right day?  Who is going to smooth over the top of the margarine and  how many lights are on upstairs when everybody is downstairs?
