Phoenix Nights star Spikey to wow at Villa Park Fosters Comedy Night

Enjoy a night of jokes and laughs at Villa Park with multi-award-winning comedian Dave Spikey.

Spikey, one of the most sought-after comedy talents in the UK, will be appearing at the Holte Suite on Friday May 27, starting at 7pm.

With a career spanning two decades, he has numerous TV appearances to his name as a stand-up comedian, presenter and actor - and behind the screens, as an acclaimed comedy writer.

He co-wrote and co-starred in Channel 4's critically acclaimed Phoenix Nights, alongside writing partners Peter Kay and Neil Fitzmaurice.

Together they brought us two series of the cult TV show with Dave playing 'the compere without compare' Jerry St Clair.

A modern comedy masterpiece, and recognised as one of the greatest sitcoms of current times, Phoenix Nights broadcast in the same year as The Office and sparked a north-south divide not witnessed since the Blur v Oasis rivalry in the 90s.

This culminated with the 2002 British Comedy Awards when the two classic sitcoms went head to head.

In this truly stellar year, Spikey received his second British Comedy Award with Phoenix Nights scooping the 'People's Choice Award'.

He further earned a nomination for 'Best Comedy Newcomer' for his inimitable portrayal of Jerry 'The Saint' St Clair.

As Phoenix Nights mania continued to sweep the nation, it also won the 'Situation Comedy & Comedy Drama' award at the RTS Programme awards - and was nominated for a prestigious Bafta award and 'Best Comedy' in the Broadcast awards.

Guests will enjoy a basket meal and entertainment from Spikey and support acts Rob Heeney and Gary Delaney.

The cost is £18 [adults] - over-18s only.

This includes a curry or basket meal and a pint of Fosters.
