WRITER, broadcaster and comedian Dom Joly, is back on the road with his one-man theatre tour, and he is scheduled to play at the McMillan Theatre in Bidgwater on October 16.

Best known as the creator of Trigger Happy TV, Dom will be talking about his exploits as a serial globe-trotting and seeker of dangerous travel spots.

COVID stopped the original tour but Dom Jolly is ready to get back into it.

“We were mid-way through the tour when Covid brought everything to a standstill, so I’m delighted that I’m finally able to get back on the road.”

The tour is called ‘Dom Joly’s Holiday Snaps’ and he’s playing more than 20 dates between September 18 to November 14.

From North Korea to Chernobyl, Dom has visited some of the most unusual places on the planet – including, of course, the Australian bush in the 10th series of hit TV show I’m A Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here. 

He attended school with Osama Bin Laden and, armed with a trusty Powerpoint, fans can expect his holiday snaps to serve up a tantalising mix of comedy and a sense of danger.

“I’ve got this collection of weird holiday snaps and I know there’s that cliché that ‘nobody wants to see anybody else’s holiday snaps’," said Dom.

"Well, my holiday snaps are really good. And I’ve got some really good stories with them."

“The theme is travel. The three things I’ll be showing will be my own holiday snaps, holiday snaps from TV shows and holiday snaps from my books.

“So, for instance, when we did Trigger Happy TV, we went to Switzerland and found out our runner couldn’t ski and then I got arrested for impersonating a yeti.

"There’s another snap of me at Chernobyl, thinking: ‘Should I eat the vegetables here or not?’ So when I put all of them together, I’ve got a seriously great holiday show," he said.
