After the insane year that was 2016, we could do with some light relief. Enter stage right, Al Murray's Pub Landlord.
This summer (June 6 and 7) Murray's vehemently British barman will be at The Courtyard in Hereford, epousing a common sense campaign to re-Great the UK.
Murray's not the only household name booked to play The Courtyard in 2017.
On January 28 Lee Hurst, a regular face on panel shows including They Think It’s All Over and Have I Got News For You, performs his new show Comedy Show No.9.
After his October show was cancelled, actor, comic and avid Hereford fan Omid Djalili will be at the venue on Febuary 1.
In April, King of the Edinburgh Fringe and Metro columnist Richard Herring - last seen making robot sex jokes at Nozstock festival - will visit Herefordshire again, picking favourite routines from his past 12 shows and cramming them into a 90 minute show.
In May, impressionist Rory Bremner and Simon Brodkin's brash caricature Lee Nelson will be live.
