Red Dwarf writer tours with new stand-up show

23rd September 2009

The writer behind Red Dwarf is touring the UK with a brand new stand-up show.

Rob Grant, who shot to fame after concocting the cult comedy with the help of Doug Naylor, will start his foray into the world of stand-up with an appearance at the Guildhall Arts Centre in Grantham this weekend.

The Salford-born writer, who penned a number of books with Naylor including Better Than Life and Son of Soup, told the Grantham Journal: 'There will be a proportion of people interested in Red Dwarf coming along so I talk about science-fiction and fantasy novels and subjects like that.'

However, he claimed the show is not all anecdotes from the TV series, and will give people an insight into his 'fairly weird mind' that 'tends to make people think'.

'What triggered it all off was missing the audience feedback from recordings for TV and radio. Making people laugh is what I live for,' he added.

It is likely the show will touch on some of the topics covered in the author's most recent book, Fat, which satirises celebrity culture, dieting and obesity, but Red Dwarf fans can rest assured that anecdotes surrounding the classic TV series will constitute the backbone of the new show.
