He’s playing more than 50 dates across the UK in 2022 on a mammoth tour running from February to November – and is performing at Kettering’s Lighthouse Theatre on May 19.

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

The comedian said: “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’. 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.

“Then there was stuff from World Shut Your Mouth, which had me the frightening the eskimo with cymbals. 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.

“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 comedian will meet fans after the performance in Kettering to sign copies of his books.
