Comedy, Stand Up

The local comedy star returns to Australia for the first time in three years with his book tour

Since 2012, Adam Hills has been busy at work hosting British comedy talk show, The Last Leg, drawing in a growing audience of millions across the UK. Unfortunately that means it's been a long time between drinks for Australian audiences, who haven't had the chance to see Hills on stage – which is where he's perhaps most comfortable – in three years.

He's set to do just two shows in 2018: one in Sydney and one in Melbourne. This is a book tour promoting his new memoir, Best Foot Forward, so it mightn't be like other gigs you've seen from Hills. Of course, there'll be stand-up, but he'll also be sharing anecdotes from the book, ranging from his early years in the Shire and starting out in comedy, through to moments with famous friends and hosting Spicks and Specks.

The promoter says there'll be just one show in Sydney, and given Hills's popularity, we're sure it'll sell out quickly. Tickets are on sale at 10am on Friday July 20.
