COMEDIAN Lloyd Griffith is stopping off at Lighthouse Poole on his biggest tour to date with his new show, One Tonne of Fun.
The show will feature his unique bag of stand up, dubious impressions and a sprinkling of singing – he trained as a classical choral singer at the University of Exeter.
This year Lloyd is appearing several new television shows including ITV drama series Nolly about the soap opera Crossroads, playing the part of Paul Henry – the actor who portrayed the popular role of Benny in the series.
Starring Helena Bonham Carter, the mini-series was written by Russell T Davies and directed by Peter Hoar (It’s A Sin).
Lloyd is also appearing in the new series of the BBC’s Bad Education and in the Channel 4 comedy Everyone Else Burns in which a hyper-religious family navigates its way through the modern world while avoiding eternal damnation.
Lloyd has also just launched new comedy podcast Fit & Proper with fellow comedian Rhys James, in which they invite a famous guest to take over a football club and rebuild it however they like, from changing the kit and the mascot to insisting all the players have a moustache for no reason.
Lloyd has also co-hosted Soccer AM for Sky with John ‘Fenners’ Fendley and Jimmy Bullard, and co-hosted Netflix comedy-entertainment show Flinch with Seann Walsh and Desiree Burch. He also fronted documentary Can You Beat The Bookies?, in which he explored the gambling industry.
He has also appeared in series 1 and 2 of Ted Lasso, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Comedy Central at The Comedy Store, Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club, Roast Battle, Question of Sport, Not Going Out, Richard Osman’s House of Games, and supported Jack Whitehall on his arena tour.
The show at Poole Lighthouse is on Wednesday, 1 March, at 7.45pm. Tickets and more information are available on 01202 280000 and at www.lighthousepoole.co.uk
