Jason Fox: Life At The Limit

January 25

Jason Fox – former Special Forces soldier, star of TV’s SAS: Who Dares Wins, Inside The Real Narcos and author of number one bestseller Battle Scars – is on tour for the first time, bringing to the stage the remarkable story of his daring exploits in a distinguished career as an elite operator in the UK Special Forces (SBS) and beyond.

From gunfights, hostage rescues, daring escapes and heroic endeavours that defined Jason Fox’s service, to a very different battle that awaited him at home, Life At The Limit is a breath-taking story of Special Forces soldiering; a chronicle of operational bravery, adventure and courage on and off the battlefield. A vivid, searing account of his life, that tells some incredible moments of strength and courage.

Life At the Limit is a very honest account of a long and difficult journey, but it promises to be inspiring, entertaining, funny and moving in equal measure.

Tony Stockwell: Psychic Medium

January 26

Remarkably compelling, amazingly detailed and always humorous.

The popular star of TV’s Street Psychic, Psychic Private Eyes and Psychic Academy, Tony Stockwell has a long established credibility as one of the top intuitive mediums.

Tony demonstrates his belief that those who have passed can communicate with their loved ones with detailed messages frequently including names, dates and locations and all delivered with emotion, sensitivity and empathy.

Ahir Shah: Live

January 28

Featuring his signature blend of philosophical inquiry, personal examination, and sweet gags, Double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Ahir Shah returns to stand- up with a new show about significance, insignificance, and scurvy.

Ahir’s last show, Dots, was recorded as a special for HBO Max (albeit after a 14 month delay brought about by events you may recall). That show was about uncertainty. Ideally, this tour will end in a way that is less on the nose.

As seen on Mock The Week, Live At the Apollo, Have I Got News For You, and The Mash Report.
