Fans have started queueing to get their hands on tickets for a special show in memory of Kent comedian Dave Lee.

Dave Lee - A Celebration will star a host of his showbiz friends at the Marlowe Theatre in May.

Tickets go on sale from 9am but some warned they were going to camp overnight for them.

Speaking earlier, director Paul Hendy said: "The show will be a fitting tribute to Dave’s wonderful career, reflecting the many different aspects of it - including music, stand-up comedy and, of course, pantomime.

"Lots of his pals have said they’d love to take part. It’s going to be a great evening and one that Dave would have been proud of."

Dave, who died from cancer last month, will be remembered for his 16 years of pantomime performances at the Marlowe and also for his annual, one-night comedy shows.

These always proved so popular that fans would camp out the night before at the theatre, determined not to miss out on tickets.

Dave would turn up to provide bacon butties, hot drinks and, of course, a joke or two.

The show is at 7pm on Sunday, May 6. All money raised will go to Dave’s Happy Holidays charity. Tickets are £35.

Customers can also book by phone on 01227 787787. There will be no online bookings.
