New tour “Yonks!” – Latest…

A second leg of dates have now been released for Chris McCausland’s brand-new stand-up tour Yonks! – which kicks off in January 2024.

This second leg of the tour will now wrap up with a humungous show at London’s Eventim Apollo on December 13th. This will be Chris’ biggest show to date and a great way to end a year of touring.

More dates will be added for 2025.

His last tour Speaky Blinder, was a mammoth 140+ date national sell-out, and Yonks! promises to be even bigger.

You Heard It Here First – Recommissioned!

Chris McCausland’s Radio 4 comedy panel show You Heard It Hear First has been recommissioned for a second series.

Series one hit the airwaves in March and is now available for streaming on BBC Sounds.

Created and hosted by Chris McCausland, the show asks comedy guests to decipher audio clips to see if they can figure out what the hell is going on, where the hell it’s going on, and why the hell it’s being allowed to go on in the first place.

Series one consisted of four episodes, but due to it’s success, a further six have been commissioned for series two.

Recording will take place early in 2024 for broadcast around spring time. Free tickets will be available via the BBC’s free ticketing scheme.

You can listen to series one here.
