Did you know that the ancestors of cockroaches date from about 300-350 million years ago? No? Well, that’s not important right now anyway. What is important is the fact that London-based Canadian comedian Bobby Mair has a brand new show and it just so happens to be called Cockroach. You might know Mair from his appearances on Netflix’s Feel Good and as host of reality-horror show Killer Camp, as well as his numerous appearances on shows like Guessable, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Celebrity Antiques Road Trip (where he battled to be most profitable against fellow comedian Jamali Maddix).

Mair visited The Witham in the summer of 2021 as part of a work-in-progress day and he’s now returning to the North East with shows at The Forum in Northallerton on Friday 11th and at The Witham on Saturday 12th March, courtesy of promoters Funny Way To Be. Cockroach is described as “dark, gut-wrenching stand-up” and promises to continue to show off how Mair is unafraid to delve into the risqué; in the past he has frequently performed sets that definitely aren’t for the faint-hearted. Yet he manages to pull it off as a lovable rogue, pulling the audience in with his wit and charm. So, will Cockroach actually contain jokes about cockroaches? You’d have to go to find out. But it will contain laughs. A lot of them.

Bobby Mair is at The Forum, Northallerton on Friday 11th and The Witham, Barnard Castle on Saturday 12th March.
