Johnny Vegas comes to the city tonight as he visits Peterborough based Ideal World TV, the home of television-based shopping.

The  retail channel has invited Johnny over tonight (Wednesday November 27) for a catch up and for him to get a taste of what it takes to be an Ideal World presenter!

The surrealist funny man from St Helen’s has an established comedy career, appearing in television programmes and films such as Ideal, Benidorm, Mr Stink as well as stand-up and panel-show performances. He’s also recently ventured into directing the drama Ragged, which features Ricky Tomlinson and has worked in radio… and of course there are those tea adverts!

As well as preparing for his TV appearance, Johnny will be talking to ESP beforehand about his brand new autobiography, entitled Becoming Johnny Vegas. He’ll also discuss what he’s currently up to at the moment.
