TICKETS to see Jon Richardson when he comes to Tiverton next month sold out in just 24 hours.

The pessimistic comedian is one of the team captains on the panel of Eight Out of Ten Cats on Channel 4 alongside Sean Lock and Jimmy Carr.

Richardson, who hails from Lancaster, will bring his act to Tiverton Community Arts Theatre on Monday, December 2, as a progress show to try out new material for an upcoming tour.

Tickets were £13 and fans were hot on the box office’s heels to snap them up within a day.
