Following two sold-out shows at the O2 Arena in successive years, triple BAFTA winning British comedian Mo Gilligan is taking The Black British Takeover on tour. Kicking off at the O2 Apollo in Manchester on 3rd November, the run culminates with a show at London’s Eventim Apollo on November 30th.
With Eddie Kadi returning as host, the tour will include the very best in headline names and emerging artists from the Black British Comedy Circuit. The announcement comes off the back of another monumental sold-out show at London’s O2 Arena.
Mo Gilligan says of the new tour: “I’m really proud of the Black British comedy circuit. It’s where it all started for me and it’s full of so much incredible talent. I’m absolutely honoured to be heading out on tour with these phenomenal comics to showcase even more history-making line ups.”
With his brand new BBC show ‘That’s My Jam’ set to premiere on December 17th, the multi award-winning TV host, Masked Singer judge and social media mega star, is one of the UK’s most celebrated comics. Recent career highlights include hosting the iconic BRIT Awards, his debut book release, recording 4 series of The Big Narstie Show, producing his first documentary, launching the acclaimed Big Breakfast reboot and landing his own hit Channel 4 series The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan, which bagged him one of those spectacular BAFTAs for the Entertainment Performance Award and was recently commissioned for a 3rd and 4th bumper series commission.
