Dara O Briain, on the board of The Theatres Trust, has been quoted in The Press.

Dara O Briain is on the road for the first time in three years with his expanded Crowd Tickler tour after his heavyweight run of television commitments.

The TV studio has been his been his workplace for such shows as Mock The Week, The Apprentice: You’re Fired! and Star Gazing Live, not forgetting Dara O Briain: School Of Hard Sums for Dave and Dara O Briain’s Science Club for BBC2, but his love of live shows has seen O Brian top up his tour from 65 shows to more than 100.

“The other day, I sat in an empty theatre thinking, ‘I just love these rooms’,” he says. “I’m on the board of The Theatres Trust in order to protect these wonderful buildings. It’s not about nimby-ism; it’s because I adore these places. It still gives me such a thrill to walk on stage.”
