Griff Rhys Jones brings ‘The Cat’s Pyjamas’ to Theatre Royal Winchester this June

Multi award-winning comedian, writer, actor, and television presenter Griff Rhys Jones is set to embark on a national stand-up tour this summer with his much-anticipated, brand-new show ‘The Cat’s Pyjamas’, coming to Theatre Royal Winchester on June 15.

 Sharing witty observations and rambling comic stories, Griff’s funny anecdotes have covered an astonishingly diverse range of subjects: from TV travel , his childhood, Welsh family, age, fraud, late night trains and nostalgia to the TikTok generation, crocodile smuggling, and opal noodling in Australia. 

 Questions and improvised interaction with the audience mean the show varies from night to night. And takes him from adventures, holidays, dog sitting, burning boats, drink and anger-management, to meetings with rock celebrities and royalty. Wherever his associations wander. 

 ‘The Cat’s Pyjamas’ follows Griff’s successful tours: “Jones and Smith”, “Where Was I?” which saw him play to capacity crowds across the UK, Australia and New Zealand, and his pre-Covid longest and biggest yet: ‘All Over The Place’, 

 Comedy Legend and National Treasure, Griff is widely know for Not the Nine O’Clock News, Smith and Jones. Restoration, It’ll be Alright on the Night and multiple arts and travel documentaries, including Griff’s Canadian Adventure: a critical and ratings success for Channel Four.

He was Max the Dog in the musical “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”, The miser in the “The Miser” in the West End and last year toured extensively with Janey Dee in “An Hour and a Half Late”. Griff was most recently Mr. Parker in “Gangster Granny Rides Again”, for CBBC at Christmas, and took a double starring role in the feature film “Future TX”. last autumn. Griff has won two Oliviers, two British Comedy Awards, two Baftas, an Emmy and, pleasingly, a regatta in Barcelona last July.
