Red Dwarf fans dressed as the character Kryten make their way to a special screening in London. John Kearns.

John Kearns is to tour the UK in 2018 with his critically acclaimed show Don't Worry They're Here.

His promoters confirm: "The only winner of both the Best Show and Best Newcomer Edinburgh Comedy Awards, John Kearns is taking his new bold, funny and thought-provoking show, directed by Jon Brittain, on tour in 2018 after a successful sold out run at the Soho Theatre."

Don't Worry, They're Here is billed as a comic, heart-warming monologue "that highlights the absurdities of the ordinary."

The tour organisers explain: "This is a stand-up routine of someone who has the everyday worries of the common man in a small world, but who is unusually insistent in expressing them. Rooted in the seemingly mundane conversations with his local cafe owner and a story about a bet he placed at the bookies, Kearns springboards from the minutia in British culture into an exploration of universal fears and human emotion.

"With a show that travels from a massage parlour, to a supermarket check-out and then to a horse racing track, this fast-paced comedy tour de force, is an emotional yet hilarious story that highlights the fragility and absurdity of life."

A full list of tour dates are below.
