POPULAR comedian Andy Parsons has announced he will be visiting Taunton once again as part of his first stand-up tour since before the pandemic.

The comic, best known for his lengthy tenure on TV panel show Mock the Week, will visit the Brewhouse in Coal Orchard to mark the end of the autumn leg of his Bafflingly Optimistic Tour.

The stand-up gig will kick off at 8pm on December 8 2023, and tickets are now available to purchase from £16.50 on the Taunton Brewhouse website.

In a promotional video for the tour, Andy commends Taunton, stating that it's more than just a motorway toilet stop.

"The autumn leg finishes at the Taunton Brewhouse - wonderful venue, great to have it back from the brink," Andy said.

"And I know for a lot of people, Taunton is just somewhere to go for a p*** as they're going down the M5, but it'll be always that much more for me."
