Ed Gamble and James Acaster are taking their Off Menu podcast on a UK tour – and the appetite for tickets has been off the scale!

After selling out in venues across the country, the comedy duo have added yet another date to their meals-on-wheels style tour at the London Palladium.

Back in April, the original tour tickets went on sale and five extra dates were included almost immediately, which we don't mind telling you caused a bit of a headache here at RadioTimes.com. Now, they're at it again, rounding their tour up to 14 shows from October to November 2023.

The upcoming live tour will be the first for the hit series and is set to be a delicious mix of podcast and live performances. The pair are promising a different version of Acaster’s Diet Coke story, and a new guest each night to be quizzed by the genie waiter (Acaster) and maître d’ (Gamble) about their dream cuisine: their favourite-ever drink, starter, main course, dessert, and side dish.

With the rotation of guests on the Off Menu podcast being not only eclectic but hugely famous in their own right — with stars such as Florence Pugh and Stanley Tucci discussing their dream courses — we have high expectations for the UK and Ireland live tour. Plus, who can forget Paul Mescal’s Off Menu episode? The Irish actor shared how he’d opt for a trusty sourdough in the poppadom or bread debate, and his favourite foods are comfort meals, like a big portion of chips.

Speaking about the tour, Gamble said: “I am mad with joy that we finally get to put the dream meals on wheels.” And Acaster added: “Like Shrek and Donkey, Ed and I are off on a noble quest and we won’t stop until we find our happily ever after.”

A more serious statement came from the show’s promoters, who announced: “Comedians and podcast hosts Ed Gamble and James Acaster are thrilled to announce the first ever live tour of their critically acclaimed podcast, Off Menu. Taking in an initial eight dates in October and November 2023, including one night at London's prestigious Royal Albert Hall.”
