Comedy fans are in for a treat when Barry Cryer brings his brand of humour to the picturesque Lake District next month.

The 76-year-old comic veteran is due to perform an evening of “stream of unconsciousness and sit-down comedy” at the Keswick theatre on Sunday October 9.

The veteran writer and comedian is known for creating gags for many of the biggest stars in British showbusiness, including the likes of Tommy Copper, Bruce Forsyth, Rory Bremner and Kenny Everett.

He will be joined on stage in the Lake District by pianist Colin Sell, who frequently appears alongside Cryer on Radio 4’s long-running comedy panel show I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue.

Cryer will return to the Theatre by the Lake following a sold-out appearance at the venue three years ago.

His latest show is called Butterfly Brain, which is also the title of his third volume of memoirs.

Tickets are available online, priced between £10 and £17.50. The performance will begin at 7.30pm.

LateRooms.com offers a diverse selection of hotels in the Lake District, including the Landing Cottage Guest House, which is situated close to the shores of Windermere.
