British stand-up Jack Dee, the man with credited with being able to turn ‘grumpiness into an art form’, will bring his show to Dubai next year.

Hot on the heels of a successful solo date for Kevin Bridges, it has been announced that one of the grumpiest men in comedy will follow suit with a special performance at the Dubai World Trade Centre on Thursday March 19.

Dee has been at the top of his game for more than two decades, combining sketch show writing, radio and TV appearances – Shooting Stars, Have I Got News For You, QI – and his infamously dour one-man act. His mainstream career was launched in 1991 following the award of the British Comedy Award for Best Stage Newcomer. It spawned several shows, including ‘The Jack Dee Show’ on Britain’s Channel 4, ‘Jack Dee’s Saturday Night’, ‘Jack Dee’s Happy Hour’ and ‘Lead Balloon’. He was also the man behind the worldwide hit ‘Live At The Apollo’.

The 53-year-old’s appearance in Dubai comes in the wake of an 18-month sell-out tour, his first in six years, around the UK and Australia. British media hailed it as ‘dry and distant, exactly what we have come to expect. It does not disappoint’. Another wrote: ‘He delivered his moans with so much sardonic style it was impossible not to smile. Dee played it safe but scored every time.’

Reflecting on the upcoming show, organisers said: ‘It’s rare that work can be this much fun, but working with some of the greatest comedians in the industry keeps us smiling here at Done Events. This is a one night only show… and one of the first of several great comedy shows that we have planned throughout 2015.’
