The BAFTA nominated Live At The Apollo returns to BBC Two for a highly anticipated fourteenth series with seven brand new episodes including a Christmas special.

This first episode of the new series of the award-winning Live at the Apollo is hosted by the wonderfully witty star of BBC Two’s The Mash Report Ellie Taylor, as she introduces the provocative Tez Ilyas  and rising comedy star Fin Taylor  to  the stage.

Jon Richardson, star of Dave’s ‘Ultimate Worrier' and team captain on Channel 4’s  ‘8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown’, plus runner-up in Heat Magazine’s ‘Weird Crush’ poll (not once, not twice but three times!!) is ready to take on the state of the world, complain a little and offer absolutely no solutions in his brand new live stand-up show.

Released on DVD and digital download on Monday 19th November, JON RICHARDSON: OLD MAN LIVE sees one of the UK’s favourite comedians return to the live comedy stage with his signature brand of side-splitting yet fastidious humour.

OLD MAN delves in to the last few years of Jon’s life, bringing the audience along with him on the life-changing journey.  Jon has left the perennial single life behind and become a husband and father, seen the UK vote to leave the EU and watched the rise of Donald Trump, all of which leaves him asking one question; why does it seem that no one else alive can correctly load a dishwasher?
