The South Norfolk-based family entertainer, who lives in Shimpling, is coming to the Diss Corn Hall on Saturday August 24 with 'The Ben Langley Show'.

The description for the show says: "The Diss-based variety comedian, panto comic and Britain's Got Talent star lands at the Corn Hall to deliver his fast-paced, hilarious one man show which will take you on a comedy train ride through the ridiculous never to return again.

"A night of fabulously silly, riotous fun for all the family."

The comic gained national recognition last year when he wowed millions of TV viewers on Britain's Got Talent.

His new show comes after Mr Langley was told he was not needed for Norwich Theatre Royal panto Cinderella this Christmas.

The decision was met with criticism from fans and thousands signed petitions to keep him in the show.

That he should choose to bring his solo show to Diss is no surprise. Living locally he has previously helped switch on the Christmas lights in both Diss and Harleston.

- The Ben Langley Show is at Diss Corn Hall on August 24, 8pm, £14, 01379 652241, disscornhall.co.uk
