CRAIG Campbell, star of BBC One’s Michael Mcintyre’s Comedy Roadshow, comes to Newport’s The Riverfront early next year.

Hailed as one of the most charismatic and inventive funny men on the circuit, he comes to the city on Saturday, March 17.

Now an internationally acclaimed act, Canadian Campbell’s whimsical travel anecdotes are said to never fail to surprise.

He has supported Rich Hall on his international tour and had two further successful solo shows in Edinburgh.

Campbell has recently appeared on Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Three) and in another series of Comedy Store for Comedy Central.

He is currently supporting Frankie Boyle on his recordbreaking tour.

Tickets for Campbell’s Newport show are £15 and are available online at k/riverfront or from the box office on 01633 656757.

The evening kicks off at 8pm.
