Micky Flanagan is set to perform at Leeds First Direct arena this week as part of his UK If Ever We Needed It tour. The cockney comedian will take the stage for two nights before travelling around the rest of the country throughout spring.

For those familiar with Flanagan’s previous brand of comedy, it will come as no surprise his latest content comes with the following warning: “The show covers Micky turning 60-who’d have thought it? As well as having sex with your glasses on, his school alumni and his b*****g . It’s fair to say it’s for over-16s.”

A tour spokesperson said: “He’s the man who gave Britain the “Out Out” phrase, which was used by Piccadilly Circus tube to put a smile on commuters’ faces as we came out out of lockdown and went on to be used by TFL to encourage people back into theatres, restaurants and clubs. Micky cut his comedy teeth at these clubs and it clearly paid off.”

Micky Flanagan will perform in Leeds on Thursday April 20 and Friday 21. Leeds First Direct Arena has said the performance will be a ‘phone free experience’ and the use of phones, smart watches and accessories will not be permitted in the performance space.
