SUNDAY'S audience at a sold-out Grand Opera House, York, is invited to "pop in and see Joe Lycett sharing jokes, paintings and some of the ridiculous internet trolling he's been up to".

Comedian Lycett is playing York as part of his I'm About To Lose Control And Joe Lycett tour, whose itinerary began in mid-February and has been extended to November 30.

As has become tradition, Lycett has chosen a music lyric-linked pun on his name as his show title, having previously come up with If You Lycett Then You Should Have Put a Ring On It and That's The Way, A-ha, A-ha, Joe Lycett .

"Since the last tour I've basically just sat on my phone being an annoying berk online, so I can't wait to get off the phone and on the road to tell everyone what I've been up to. It's all absolutely pathetic but some of it is a right laugh."

As well as Sunday's 8pm York gig, Lycett has booked Yorkshire shows for Hull City Hall on September 5, Sheffield City Hall on October 23 and Leeds Town Hall on October 30. Tickets are on sale at
