Lloyd Griffith said: “Stand-up is my favourite thing to do in the world, so I can’t wait to be going back out on tour with this new show. We’re going back to some of my favourite venues and also playing some bigger rooms which I’m proper pumped for. Look out for me at a service station in 2020 loading up on carbs.”
