Nick Hancock to host stage show with TV sporting legends.
Imagine the most fun you could have in a theatre with three iconic sporting experts. Introduce TV host Nick Hancock add two sporting legends, Phil Tufnell and Matt Dawson and you have a match made in heaven. A Lock In With Tuffers and Dawson is a new live show that takes place in a working bar.
Well known for their chatty amusing banter on the BBC’s A Question of Sport, Tuffers and Daws go head to head live on stage with Nick at the helm. Host Nick Hancock attempts to keep control of the duo as they try to outdo each other with games, big screen action and hilarious stories.
Nick will help us get to know the boys a bit better, enticing them to draw out some hilarious stories about each other and lift the lid on their hugely successful sporting careers, their larger than life teammates and opponents – on and off the field.
This is guaranteed to be a wonderful evening for sports fans and non-enthusiasts alike and if you get to the theatre a little earlier you have the novelty of ordering yourself a drink at the on-stage bar.
Producer Simon Fielder said: “I have worked with Tuffers on our successful Evenings With Aggers shows and it just made sense to bring him and Matt together on stage. So I’m delighted to welcome world cup hero and Lions legend Matt Dawson on board as well as the brilliant, quick-witted Nick Hancock.
“I used to regularly tune in to They Think It’s All Over and loved Nick’s ability to deal with some pretty big personalities, from the likes of Jonathan Ross, Gary Lineker, David Gower to Lee Hurst, among many others. Nick is the perfect foil for Tuffers and Daws and I’m really looking forward to seeing them all on stage.”
The show will appear at the New Alexandra Theatre in Birmingham on Tuesday 11th September. You can book tickets and find out more at www.simonfielder.com and follow the show on social media on twitter @TuffersandDaws and on Facebook.
