The comedian will play the Gala Theatre, Durham City, on a single date in May to try out new material before embarking on a 60-date tour of some of the UK’s largest venues.
Tickets for the Durham show went on sale to friends of the theatre on Monday, and to the public at 10am on Tuesday.
There were queues outside the theatre box office in Millennium Place,.
All 620 tickets were sold by 10.30am.
Sales of the £25 seats were limited to two per person. The box office is compiling a waiting list in case of returns.
It is unlikely any extra dates will be added because of the one-off nature of the performance.
