Comedian Alex Horne, star and co-creator of BBC Four comedy quiz show We Need Answers is on his way to the Platform in Morecambe.

The award-winning comedian has established a reputation among critics, comedians and audiences as a thoughtful and original stand-up, writer and solo performer. He recently chaired Never Mind The Buzzcocks on BBC Two.

His new show, Alex Horne: Seven Years In The Bathroom, is described as “The ultimate stat-based fun-packed thought-provoking experimental-and-sometimes-stupid comedy show in which Alex aims to recreate your entire life.

He’ll do everything you’ll ever do but in one evening. So in an average lifetime you’ll spend two years shopping, two weeks kissing and eighteen months looking for lost things. You’ll also spend quite a while eating, queuing, crying and googling yourself.

Alex is going to squeeze all those things into one show to launch the Platform’s Spring/Summer events programme.

The Sunday Times described the show as: “A beguiling blend of the smart and the stupid – a real delight”.

The show is on Friday 15 February at 8pm and tickets are £12.

They can be purchased online at, from the box office on 01524 582803 or in person from visitor information centres at Lancaster and Morecambe. For more information on events at the Platform in 2013 or to sign up to receive a copy of the Spring/Summer Platform brochure by email, visit
