ONE of the UK’s best-loved comedians and the host of ITV’s prime-time series Take Me Out, Paddy McGuinness is returning to his stand-up performing roots - and visiting Weston for a one-off show in October.

McGuinness has been a mainstay of British TV since childhood friend Peter Kay invited him to star in That Peter Kay Thing, just before the turn of the millennium - and he’s never looked back since.

The two combined again in Phoenix Nights and Max and Paddy’s Road To Nowhere, before McGuinness turned his eye to the stage and stand-up with the first of three superb comedy tours of the UK.

Now he’s back on the road with his latest offering, Daddy McGuinness, his first venture back to the comedy circuit since becoming a father in 2013 – and you can expect plenty of laughs about parenthood, as well as the usual mix of hilarity from the Lancashire comedian.

Since 2010, he’s been the unmistakable face of ITV Saturday night favourite Take Me Out, with his array of catchphrases which have been repeated in living rooms throughout the country.

Paddy said: “Among many other things, I’ll be sharing several stories about the joys of becoming a first-time dad and parenthood.”

McGuinness’ tour visits The Playhouse theatre in Weston’s High Street on October 10, starting at 8pm. Tickets, priced £19.50-£37, are available on 01934 645544 or at
