One of the country's top stand-up comedians will play a special pre-tour show in Lowestoft this summer.

Television regular Michael McIntyre, nominated for the Best Live Stand-Up accolade at the British Comedy Awards, will be at the Marina Theatre on Sunday July 5, ahead of a 30-date UK arena tour in the autumn.

Last year, he sold out shows around the UK including five shows at the Hammersmith Apollo in London and his debut DVD release - Michael McIntyre Live and Laughing - became the fastest-selling debut stand-up DVD of all time.

Tickets for the show will go on sale from the theatre's box office from 10am this Sunday. Bookings will only be accepted in person, not by telephone, and will be on a first come, first served basis.

Singing star Connie Fisher has been forced to postpone her forthcoming Secret Love Tour, including a performance in Lowestoft on June 8.

The popular winner of the BBC show How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria has cancelled the entire tour after being told she needs surgery for a serious medical problem, which could affect her singing career.
