BOBBY Mair will be Loudly Insecure at the Burning Duck Comedy Club on Friday night as he brings his debut tour show to The Basement, City Screen, York.

Thirty years ago, Mair was put up for adoption and now he is tracking down his birth family one by one. Saying his search has hit a couple of snags would be an understatement, and he still has relatives out there who continue to elude him, except for Justin Bieber.

Loudly Insecure gives Mair a chance to fill you in on the wildly dramatic twists and turns of his quest; the accidental broadening of his search for next of kin. A smattering of other musings will be aired along the way, such as his love of strangers, his techniques to impress his personal trainer and his pondering on whether remembering virginity loss is inappropriate.

Over the past couple of years, Mair has become an instantly recognisable face on British television and the comedy circuit, where he has supported Bill Burr and Doug Stanhope on tour.

He has shot his first comedy series for Viceland, co-starring with the love of his life, Harriet Kemsley in a show that follows the pair’s dysfunctional journey towards their impending marriage. He is a series regular in Channel 4’s World Of Weird, the roaming reporter for the satirical political show Sam Delaney’s News Thing on RT UK and the host and writer of The Bobby Mair Show for Comedy Central online.

In addition, Mair is a seasoned panellist on Channel 4's 8 Out Of 10 Cats, BBC2's Never Mind The Buzzcocks, E4's Virtually Famous, BBC3's Sweat The Small Stuff and ITV's Safe Word.

Tickets for Friday's 7.30pm show cost £12.50 at
