PAUL Merton’s Impro Chums will return to the Grand Opera House, York, on May 1 next year for the first time since May 2010.

The Have I Got News For You team captain will be accompanied by regular chums Mike McShane, Lee Simpson, Suki Webster and pianist Richard Vranch and, as ever, they will create a comedy show based entirely on suggestions from the audience, their improvisational skills and an “almost manic compulsion to show off”.

Special guests may join these seasoned performers; Niall Ashdown, Andy Smart and Steve Steen being among the possibilities.

Tickets are on sale at £22 on 0844 871 3024 or at
