COMEDIAN Jack Dee will try out new material for his forthcoming tour in a work-in-progress show at Pocklington Arts Centre on May 19.

“In these difficult and uncertain times, people need hope – a ray of sunshine to brighten their day. And that’s very much where I come in,” says Dee, the cynical star of television sitcoms Bad Move, Lead Balloon and Josh and chairman of BBC Radio 4’s game show I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue.

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Thursday on 01759 301547 or at
