POPULAR comedian Adam Hills is calling in at the Wyvern Theatre on Saturday with a show centred on his best-selling autobiography, called Best Foot Forward.

He will be reading selected chapters of the book, which is described as a hilarious and honest collection of stories, thoughts, and tales of a life in comedy. Copies will be available to buy after the show.

Expect plenty of laughs as Adam Hills is one of the most popular comedians in the UK. In addition to his stand-up, he took the UK by storm with his satirical news and talk show on Channel 4 – The Last Leg. Now in its twelfth series, The Last Leg originally ran alongside the 2012 London Paralympics and regularly attracts over 1.8 million viewers. It started off when Adam hosted a daily alternative review of each day's sporting events, with Alex Brooker and comedian Josh Widdicombe

Best Foot Forward tells the story of a life spent in comedy, from Adam's early days on the Sydney Stand-Up scene, to hosting his own radio show in Adelaide, touring the world and eventually landing on British TV. Along the way Adam shares some childhood tales, a few backstage blunders, and encounters some fairly famous faces – from Whoopi Goldberg and Billy Connolly, to the guy that sang The Macarena. No, not that guy, the other guy.

It’s a lesson in following your heart, being positive, and discovering that what makes you different also makes you unique.

Adam was also the host of the Australian hit show Spicks and Specks which ran for 277 episodes, and his own Australian talk show, Adam Hills Tonight.

He has made appearances on Australian shows Rove Live, The Glass House and The Fat, as well as the British shows Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Mock the Week, QI and Ask Rhod Gilbert. Adam now lives in London, and last year he set up the Warrington Wolves Physical Disability rugby league team, and he played in their World Club Challenge.

He has toured internationally with solo shows, and Adam's combination of positive, uplifting comedy and spontaneity has earned him a swag of awards, glowing reviews and a legion of fans around the planet.

According to the Guardian, he "delivers stand up so effortlessly brilliant you wonder why some comedians even get out of bed."

The show is suitable for ages 14 plus. Tickets are £18.50. To book, call 01793 524481 or visit swindontheatres.co.uk.
