A comedian who tweeted dead Margaret Thatcher jokes when her death was announced will appear on stage in Grantham this month.

Martin Mor, from Northern Ireland, will headline a show at The Atrium in High Street, on Thursday, January 29.

When Lady Thatcher, the former Prime Minister born in Grantham, died on April 8, 2013, Mor was quoted in The Daily Record as saying: “I have been waiting so long for her to die that I felt like a kid on Christmas morning. I spent all day tweeting Dead Margaret jokes and dancing around my front room.”

Mor, 50, started out as a circus entertainer, but turned to stand-up after breaking an ankle. Having supported Frankie Boyle, Jack Dee, Lee Evans, Jasper Carrot, Patrick Kielty, Johnny Vegas, Steve Coogan, and once Tina Turner on Tour he is one of the most popular and well travelled comics on the circuit. He is known for fiery insults directed at audience members, which are accepted with laughter.
