Star of BBC2’s Attention Scum Simon Munnery brings his new tour to Kettering Arts Centre this weekend.

Following the success of his first-ever national tour of Self Employed in 2011, his new show is called Hats Off To The 101ers, And Other Material.

It is an extravagant mess of foaming bubble hats, superlative jokes, bad guitar riffs, delightful monologues, hand-made engineering feats and an overly-ambitious one-man punk musical about the R101 airship of the 1930s.

First on TV screens in the mid-1990s on Saturday Live, Simon had two series of his own show on Radio 4, Where Did It All Go Wrong?, while his Radio 1 series, Alan Parker’s 29 Minutes of Truth picked up a Sony Gold Radio Award.

Simon is at Kettering Arts Centre on Saturday night. Doors open at 7.30pm and the show starts at 8pm.

Tickets cost £10 (concessions £8) and are available from Waterstone’s in Kettering, Kettering Tourist Information Office and St Andrew’s Church.
