Comedy legend Tommy Cannon is set to make a comeback as a solo act.

The funnyman, 83, will be going on the road with a new show this autumn, a year after losing his comedy partner Bobby Ball.

Laugh Me A Laugh will see him perform for fans in cities including Lincoln, Southampton and Leeds.

Tommy will be doing a new stand-up routine, performing songs and answering questions from the audience.

And he’ll be paying tribute to best pal Bobby, who died last October after being diagnosed with coronavirus.

Tommy will be joined on the 23-date tour by fellow comics Stu Francis and Johnnie Casson.
