Reeves & Mortimer announce new tour
Madcap comedy duo Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer have confirmed their first tour in 20 years.
The House Of Fools stars will mark 25 years of performing together with the live show, which they promised would feature " some uplifting moments ... musical moments, maybe some magic ... (and) dancing styles".
Elements from TV shows such as Vic Reeves Big Night Out and Shooting Stars will feature, with characters like Man With The Stick, The Stotts, Mulligan and O'Hare.
Reeves said: "Destiny has led us to this point in time. Now, finally, the diversion of Reeves and Mortimer can be revealed in full extent through a cornucopia of preposterous doggerel etc."
Mortimer added: "Playing in front of a living audience is where it all began for us. Some people feel most alive when they are eg on fire or in Turkey, but for us the stage is where we thrive.
"I will ensure that Vic arrives at all dates smartly dressed and unarmed. I promise not to mention football, JLS or apricots during the performances. Should you choose to attend, be warned - I will be not be wearing a toupee."
Tickets for 25 Years Of Reeves & Mortimer: The Poignant Moments go on sale on Friday, with the first date in Glasgow on November 11.
