Some of you may recall that I excitedly blogged about Stephen Merchant‘s first ever stand-up tour way back in February 2011. Well, fast forward ten months, and the co-creator of The Office and Extras has finally touched down on our shores. In case you forgot, Stephen will be playing The Town Hall on December 20 and December 21 (Buy Tickets). The December 20 show is sold out, but the good news is I’m giving 5 pairs or tickets to the December 21 show. Contest ends Tuesday, December 20 at noon, 1 entry per household, locals only please. If you’d like to enter for a chance to win tickets to the show, fill out the contest entry form after the jump.
