Scouser Rowe also picked up Best Club Comedian at this year’s Chortle Awards, with Have A Word also taking home Best Podcast.

Rowe was overwhelmed with the lightening quick sale of tickets for the Liverpool date, saying: “I’ve never been more excited for a show in my entire career.

“This isn’t just going to be a live podcast; this is going to be a visual spectacular. An absolute extravaganza to celebrate almost three years of Have A Word madness.”

Nightingale added: ‘ I cannot wait for this. The biggest night of my career, the biggest night in the history of Have A Word. Oh, the mayhem we have planned! It’s going to be unbelievable.’

The event takes place on December 9, 2022 at Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena.
