SAM THOMPSON & PETE WICKS

STAYING RELEVANT LIVE

Sam Thompson and Pete Wicks are thrilled to announce they will be taking their chart-topping podcast Staying Relevant on tour in April 2024 to Newcastle, Glasgow, London, Manchester, Cardiff, Birmingham and Dublin.

Listeners will get the chance to join Sam and Pete in their weekly quest for fame as they continue to explore what it really takes to stay relevant. During the show, as well as learning first-hand about the perils and pitfalls of fame from two best friends in the industry, there will be plenty of interactive moments including the “Vault”, where some clips of Pete’s questionable opinions may be revealed to the audience. There will also be a new spin-off from the podcast’s popular “Sidebar of Shame” called “The Seat Of Shame” giving members of the audience a chance to go on stage to share their “Seat Of Shame” moment.

After countless conversations about what it really takes to maintain fame for the long run, Staying Relevant was launched by Pete and Sam in 2022. The award-nominated podcast has recently celebrated over 5 million downloads and has hit (and held) the coveted No.#1 Comedy chart spot on numerous occasions.

So, the venues are booked, the fridge is stocked with beer (for Pete) and Peperami (for Sam), and the format has been carefully planned… on the back of a napkin. Expect plenty of laughs but mostly utter chaos as the boys look back at their careers and share their hopes and dreams for a future of superstardom.

Staying Relevant and Friends

You asked. We heard.

After selling out nine venues with a total of 17,000+ tickets sold in record-breaking time (we don’t know who tracks these things but that’s what the agents said), we are back for more. But bigger. It’s a brand new show baby!

Sam Thompson & Pete Wicks are thrilled to announce that Staying Relevant will be going live with a brand new show before 2024 is over, with a limited run at the iconic Hammersmith Apollo, London.

Building on the smash success of their sold out debut UK tour, Staying Relevant Live is creating something different. Meet Staying Relevant And Friends.

Sam & Pete will be opening their little black books (being completely honest, it’s mostly Pete’s) to invite down the UK’s most notorious and relevant names for a night of surprises. But this isn’t a talk show. Leave any preconceptions of guest appearances at the door, as your favourite household names will be put through their paces for crowd-pleasing theatrical experiences they definitely won’t be expecting. [PR Note: Please remove to not put the famous people off]

There are many questions still to be answered: Will Sam finally crowd surf? Will Pete seek vengeance for being made a spectacle of in the first tour? What is next for the tour bus shenanigans?

The lawyers will be working overtime to insure this one.
