Three venues across Warwickshire will be hosting a rather unusual stand up tour by a comedian.

Damian Kingsley is doing a 120 gig tour from Lands End to Edinburgh and can be seen over three successive days.

The first of the gigs will be at The Loft Theatre in Leamington Spa on Sunday May 29. This will be followed by a gig at The Wild Boar in Warwick on the Monday May 30 and then the Talisman Theatre in Kenilworth on Tuesday May 31.

He is doing the Knock Knock tour to raise funds for Shelter.

Damian said: “It so important we raise money and awareness for Shelter, and I feel privileged to have the opportunity to do this.

“I am as worried as I am excited about the Knock Knock tour, but my experience will obviously be no more than a small insight into what homeless people go through every day of their lives.”

As well as performing on the circuit, he regularly performs at the Edinburgh, Brighton and Leicester fringe festivals but Knock Knock will be his debut full length solo show.

Entrances to all of the gigs are free except for the Leamington one where entrance costs £7.50.
