Comedy star Marcus Brigstocke is touring the UK this autumn with his new stand-up show Devil May Care.

The award-winning comedian will be heading out on the road after completing a month-long stint with the show at this year’s Edinburgh Festival.

And he will be at Lincoln Drill Hall on September 7.

Snowflake, Nazi, Remoaner, Trot, Libtard, Brextremist, Feminazi, Piers Morgan...

As we divide each other up into more and more unpleasant categories of evil, it is time to establish, once and for all, what is good and what is bad.

And who better to arbitrate in these challenging, divisive times than Lucifer himself?

The Devil no longer runs Hell day-to-day.

He’s retired now, and plays Golf at Mar-a-Lago, but the Dark Lord is still on the board of the Underworld and attends a bi-annual meeting to advise on how to make eternal damnation sustainably hot, how to keep a thousand minions on zero hours contracts, and what to do about Jacob Rees Mogg.

This will be the first time Marcus has presented a character-driven stand-up show, performing as Milton’s fallen angel from Paradise Lost.

Marcus said: “I’ll be fully devilled up, complete with horns, tail and malevolent grin.

“I want to explore the nature of good and bad.

“Do good people do bad things with good intentions?

“Is anyone truly wicked?

“Are any of us wholly good?

“And what’s to be done about Piers Morgan?”

Marcus Brigstocke is a master of satirical comedy, with an impressive list of TV credits including his role as team captain on Argumental (Dave), and host of The Late Edition and I’ve Never Seen Star Wars (BBC4).

BBC Radio 4 has become somewhat of a second home to Marcus, with regular appearances on I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue, The Now Show and Just A Minute.
