Roadrunner is Lee’s amazing new show with 63 nights at the biggest arenas in the country. In fact when the show initially went on sale last year it smashed UK box office records by selling 227,424 tickets in just one day, firmly establishing it as the fastest and biggest day one selling UK comedy tour of all time.
Lee’s manic energy, uncanny observations, hilarious delivery and side-splitting material have made his live performances a must-see for comedy fans worldwide.
“As with Lee’s previous performances in Plymouth a few years back, tickets are bound to sell-out and be like gold dust!”
