After teasing potential live shows earlier this year, the Always Sunny Podcast will officially be making its way across the pond for gigs in London and Dublin

Good news for fans of the Always Sunny Podcast - after Always Sunny in Philadelphia creator Rob McElhenney (Welcome to Wrexham, Mythic Quest) teased the potential for live shows of the podcast last month, it has been officially announced that a handful of live shows will indeed be held in London and Dublin.

The sitcom recently became the longest running live action American comedy series after debuting back in 2005. So far, it has run for 15 seasons - the title of longest running sitcom in history actually goes to the BBC comedy Last of the Summer Wine, which ran for 37 years and a whopping 31 seasons. The longest running animated sitcom is The Simpsons, which is currently in its 33rd season.

While ticket prices haven’t been released officially yet, the 3Arena website states that prices start from €56.95, which is roughly £50.13.

On the Royal Albert Hall website, it says that “this event is not recommended for children under five” and that “all customers aged 14 years or below must be accompanied by an adult aged 18 years or over”.

The 3Arena website issues slightly different guidance, explaining that “under 16s must be accompanied by an adult”, rather than under 14s.
