TICKETS for Billy Connolly’s Futurist gigs in the new year are selling fast.

The US-based Scottish comedian is doing two shows – Saturday January 21 and Sunday January 22, daily at 8pm.

“Tickets sales are going wonderfully well,” said Barrie Stead who runs the safront venue.

“There are some left but we do not expect them to last long,” he said.

“What a great ‘winter’ there is to come to the Futurist, Billy, the Chuckle Brothers new show, Dreamboats and Petticoats and the Hollies 50th anniversary tour – and all this within eight weeks of each other.

“This is super for Scarborough,” said Mr Stead.
