Vic Reeves & Bob Mortimer’s promoter has confirmed that comedian Bob Mortimer has undergone a successful triple bypass heart operation, and subsequently their Plymouth show on Sunday 29 November has been cancelled.
Following the operation, Bob will need to rest and recuperate for several weeks. Because of this, the first leg of the upcoming UK tour ‘25 Years of Reeves and Mortimer – The Poignant Moments’ has been cancelled. It is hoped that the January and February 2016 shows will go ahead as planned.

Next Saturday (August 29) the road show rolls in to the Imperial Recreation Ground in Exmouth from 11am to 2pm and everyone is invited to come along and have a chat with the council’s recycling and waste team.
