FANS of the hit comedy series Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere - now enjoying a re-run on Channel 4 - can get up close and personal to Paddy McGuinness in Huddersfield.
The comedian is appearing at Huddersfield Town Hall on Sunday, October 30.
Peter Kay's sidekick in the offshoot of Phoenix Nights returns to Huddersfield with his first national solo tour following two sell-out Jumping on the Bandwagon tours.
Having played Paddy the sex-mad doorman in two series of Phoenix Nights Paddy not only co-starred in but co-wrote Road to Nowhere.
And following the successful Bandwagon tours with other cast members from Phoenix Nights, he is striking out on his own national tour with a stand-up routine.
It has been described as "hilarious" and "absolutely brilliant".
His warm-up gigs over the summer were sell-outs, as are some of the venues in the main 24-date tour - which he kicks off in Huddersfield.
McGuinness was born in Bolton 32 years ago and did various jobs.
They included being a silver service waiter, building labourer, at Club 18-30 rep and the man who cleans dough off bakery machines.
He was working at Horwich Leisure Centre near Bolton as lifeguard, duty manager and fitness instructor, among other roles, when he appeared in That Peter Kay Thing in 2000 and the first series of Phoenix Nights in 2001.
McGuinness left his "normal" job when the second series of Phoenix Nights began.
His first TV role was playing Terry in The Services in 1999, a one-off mocumentary written by Peter Kay for Channel 4's Comedy Lab.
He has also appeared with Alan Partridge for Comic Relief, guest presented and written the BBC's Pure Soap, written and presented on radio and done stand-up comedy.
His show - recommended for over-16s only - starts at 8pm.
Tickets are £14 (with concessions).
They are available from Kirklees booking offices or by phoning the ticket hotline, 01484 223200.
