The comedian, who rose to fame after winning the ITV1 show Stand Up Britain in 2002, traded in his rugby background for a microphone and a whole new career on stage.

There are just 40 places available for the intimate event and fans of Halifax born Lea have the opportunity to buy tickets directly from the café on Thornhill Beck Lane for £14 each.

Lea has built up a reputation as a leading comedian and after dinner speaker, and has featured on a number of TV shows, such as That’s Entertainment.He becomes the third act to perform at Big Shots café, following musician Roger Davies and psychic Dean James Fox.

“Lea will bring high spirits to our unique venue, which lends itself perfectly to such intimate gigs,” said Stefanie Hopkins of Big Shots.
