Away from live stand-up, Jon is best known as team captain on Channel 4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown. Recent TV credits include Have I Got News For You, Live At The Apollo, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and Never Mind The Buzzcocks.

Jon is also performing a sold out show at The Alban Arena on Tuesday, May 13.

The gig starts at 8pm and tickets are £20.

n Academy Award winning film, 12 Years a Slave is showing at the Arena from next Tuesday to Thursday evenings, May 6-8, and with a matinee on Wednesday, May 7.

Based on the true story of one man’s fight for survival and freedom, it is set in pre-Civil War United States.

Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man earning his living as a violinist, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty at the hands of an evil slave owner (Michael Fassbender), as well as unexpected kindness, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive but to retain his dignity.

During the 12th year of his unforgettable journey, Solomon’s meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt) changes his life forever.

Tickets for the evening showings at 7.30pm are £7 with concessions £5 and for the matinee at 1.30pm they are £5.
