2020 might have been a write-off for live events and gigs, but now that there’s a plan for all this to finally be over with, we can start to look ahead to the latter half of 2021 with hope that our favourite gigs will be back.

Here, we’ve got the rundown of all the top comedians planning on a trip to Hull & East Yorkshire as part of their post-lockdown tours. Please remember, all these dates are subject to change, but we’ll try to keep this article as up to date as possible.
