Mike Bubbins, star of hit podcast The Socially Distant Sports Bar, and of BBC television comedies Mammoth, Tourist Trap and The Unexplainers is set to embark on his first ever solo UK stand-up tour, ‘THROWBACK’ in 2022. Kicking off in Northampton on 12 February, the tour will travel the length and breadth of the UK playing 34 dates before culminating in Barnsley on 8 April. Tickets are on sale at 10am on Friday 30 July from Ticketmaster.co.uk. 

‘THROWBACK’ is a powerful, thought-provoking, visceral hour of stand-up comedy, that pushes boundaries, defies neat descriptions and challenges the audience… AS IF IT IS! 

It’s actually an hour and a half of really funny stories, pretty impressive characterisations, possibly a song (he said he’ll see how that goes), a bit of nostalgia about the good old days, a bit of optimism about the good new days, and Mike generally having a laugh about life and not taking himself, or anything else, too seriously. Having said that, he may, at some point in the show, get very annoyed at berks, whether in the past, the present, or the future. Very annoyed.

On the announcement, Mike said: “They asked me to do a UK comedy tour, called ‘THROWBACK’… and so I did.”

So basically, ‘THROWBACK’ is a comedy show about Bubbins sharing, and bringing to life, the stuff that he finds funny. As comedy concepts go, it’s a pretty straightforward one, really.
