News: Extra London Dates and National Tour for Kieran Hodgson

Following a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival, Foster’s Comedy Award nominee Kieran Hodgson is taking his show Lance on the road, starting in Belfast on January 12.

In 2003 Lance Armstrong won his 5th consecutive Tour de France, an achievement watched by a young and impressionable Hodgson from his West Yorkshire home. Lance is the hilarious story of growing up and moving on in the wake of a betrayal by your hero.

Lance traces Kieran’s experiences growing up and sees him embody his best friends in the Boy Scouts as well as some of the colourful characters he met once he moved to London. This lively personal story is tied together through a representation of Lance Armstrong, culminating with the Tour De France’s incongruous arrival in Yorkshire last year.

Hodgson has appeared in Jonathan Creek and Count Arthur Strong as well as E4’s Drifters and Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa. He also has a guest role in the upcoming second series of the BBC Three hit comedy Siblings.

He will also be seen as the role of Ian Lavender in BBC Two’s upcoming drama We're Doomed: The Dad's Army Story alongside John Sessions, Kevin Bishop and Sally Phillips, which will be broadcast over Christmas. He will also star in Sam Simmons’ Christmas Cracker alongside Bridget Christie and which airs on Sky Arts and Sky On Demand over Christmas

As a regular on BBC Radio 4, Kieran has appeared in shows such as What The Future?, Newsjack and as a regular on the four part sitcom The Lentil Sorters with Vincent Franklin, Rebekah Staton and Julia Deakin. He also recently played Pliny the Younger in BBC Radio 4’s serial How To Survive The Roman Empire with Joanna Scanlan.
