Comedian Stephen K Amos is promising to lift the mood when he returns to the Lichfield Garrick this week.
The London-based comic will be performing his Laughter Master show in the city on Wednesday (November 11).
He told LichfieldLive that he hoped his humour would unite the crowd.
“The show is just going to be about laughter,” he said. “All this conflict and fearmongering going on in the world, I just want people to realise we are all the same underneath and that we should laugh together.
The comedian is fresh from touring New Zealand and Australia and he has plans to take his brand of feel-good comedy to LA next year.
But a Lichfield audience will get to find out just why he decided on the title for this tour.
He explained: “I have done this for so long now, why be humble? I am the Laughter Master!”
The funnyman is well-known for his guest appearances on popular television shows such as Mock the Week, but he is happy to be back on the live circuit.
“Nothing beats your own show,” he said. “In TV even if it’s your show you have to rely on other people for material. You have to comply with a lot of things and really watch what you say or do.
“At a gig you’re your own self-censor and that’s the beauty of doing things live.”
Doors open for the show at 8pm and tickets are still available from the Garrick box office priced at £17. Call 01543 412121 or visit www.lichfieldgarrick.com to book.
