WHAT’S ON APRIL: Trigger Happy TV Star Live at Eastwood Park Theatre
Writer, broadcaster and comedian Dom Joly, best known as the creator of Trigger Happy TV, is coming to Eastwood Park Theatre for his only Scottish date as part of his UK theatre tour.
Dom will be talking about his exploits as a serial globe-trotter and seeker of dangerous travel spots at the Giffnock theatre on Friday 3 April at 7.30pm.
From North Korea to Chernobyl, Dom has visited some of the most unusual places on the planet – including the Australian bush in the 10th series of hit TV show I’m A Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here. He famously attended school with Osama Bin Laden and, armed with a trusty Powerpoint, fans can expect his holiday snaps to serve up a tantalising mix of comedy and a sense of danger.
The best-selling author will also meet Glasgow fans after the show to sign copies of his latest book, The Hezbollah Hiking Club during his first theatre tour since 2011.
Dom said he’s looking forward to the Eastwood Park Theatre show, adding: “I’ve got this collection of weird holiday snaps. And I know there’s that cliché that ‘nobody wants to see anybody else’s holiday snaps’. Well, my holiday snaps are really good. And I’ve got some really good stories with them.
“The theme is travel. The three things I’ll be showing will be my own holiday snaps, holiday snaps from TV shows and holiday snaps from my books.
“So, for instance, when we did Trigger Happy TV, we went to Switzerland and found out our runner couldn’t ski and then I got arrested for impersonating a yeti.
“There’s a snap of me at Chernobyl, thinking: ‘Should I eat the vegetables here or not?’ So when I put all of them together, I’ve got a seriously great holiday show.”
Dom Joly’s Holiday Snaps is part of Eastwood Park Theatre’s packed programme of events, which runs from January – June 2020. The Giffnock theatre has over thirty shows featuring live music, top class theatre productions, comedy, dance and kids’ entertainment.
