COMIC Reginald D Hunter will be appearing live on stage in St Albans this week hot on the heels of his controversial stand-up show at the Professional Footballers’ Association Awards.

The American comedian’s routine at the PFA’s prize-giving ceremony last Sunday kicked up a storm.

Following the uproar sparked by his appearance at the Grosvenor House Hotel bash – where Tottenham Hotspur star Gareth Bale scooped both the Player Of The Year and the Young Player Of The Year awards – the PFA wants the comedian to repay his performance fee.

Reginald will be bringing his ‘unique’ blend of humour to the Alban Arena with his new show In The Midst Of Crackers on Thursday, May 9 at 8pm.

The Have I Got News For You and 8 Out of 10 Cats regular is no stranger to St Albans having performed at the first Laughs in the Park open-air comedy festival alongside Eddie Izzard and Dylan Moran.

If his television appearances have presented him as a comic of companionable yet risqué wit, then Hunter’s stand-up proves him a hard-hitting pugilist.

Next week’s St Albans show is now sold out.

However, there is a further chance to see his current tour later in the year on Saturday, November 2 at 8pm.

Tickets cost £23. Call the Alban Arena box office on 01727 844488 or book online at
