ESSEX comedy star Joe Pasquale is set to bring his new show to Colchester later this month. 

The funny-man will perform his longest comedy show ever at the Mercury Theatre on Saturday, April, 27. 

His new show, 'The New Normal – 40 Years of Cack – Continued!', comes after the actor accidentally impaled himself on prop Moose antlers during last year's tour.

He said: "It’ll be a mixture of comedy and questions from the audience, but it’ll be me flying by the seat of my pants most nights.

"The show is a relentless barrage of nuttiness, really. I just go out there and have fun. I don’t have Ray Tizzard with me who used to play my twin brother Raynard.

"He’s got a family now and his wife doesn’t want him on the road in his pants anymore.

"He’s now the stage manager at Wolverhampton Grand but he’s aways calling me and saying: 'I miss it so bad'."

His unique take on comedy seeks to answer various questions, such as "can a vegetarian get a job as a Beefeater?" or "if an Eskimo has a house-warming party, will his igloo melt?"

Audience members this year will also have the opportunity to pose questions to Pasquale during the live shows.

Aside from his stand-up work, Pasquale has impressed audiences and critics with a series of TV appearances, most recently winning 'The Masked Singer: I’m A Celebrity Special' as ‘The Dunny’.

He also revived the celebrated TV character Frank Spencer for a theatre show in 2018 and won 'I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!' in 2004.
