Scottish stand-up comedian Phil Kay plans to warm up the crowd at his gig during the E4 Udderbelly event at London's Southback Centre on Monday using an unconventional method - the Perrier nominee and British Comedy Award winner will take them on a 38 minute bike tour of the area. "We'll try and cycle as closely together as possible. It will be like the Tour de France," he says, "Or more like the Tour Difference, get it?"
Kay, who has appeared on QI (last truly funny programme on British TV) and Russell Howard's Good News and has a string of respectable writing credits to pad out his curriculum vitae, says he expects a small turn-out for the tour but promises a bike striptease to conclude the gig which is called Freewheelin' Mirth Pedaler. Tickets can be had from the Southbank Centre website for a mere £12.50. Incidentally, we rate him highly - but his beard gets top marks.
