A large group of fans were forced to exit from a venue in Leeds during Paul Chowdhry’s comedy gig after reports of a suspected gas leak.
It is believed the fire alarm went off at around 8:30pm on Monday evening during at the Leeds City Varieties.
The show was cancelled and people were led away from the building towards the nearby Briggate area.
An eyewitness said people were warned not to go near the area as there was a strong smell of gas coming from the cellar.
The gig was reportedly meant to take place last April. It has already been rescheduled twice before the evacuation tonight.
Hundreds of people were seen gathered outside the venue with viewers saying claiming the situation was ‘ridiculous.’
Paul, 48, is a regular on panel shows and the stand-up circuit in the UK, and previously presented Stand Up for the Week.
Last year, the much-loved comic was involved in a terrifying incident earlier which led a fan to intervene.
He confirmed he was attacked while ‘in his car’ after the witness messaged him to check whether he was okay.
He told his followers on social media: ‘I was attacked in my car yesterday in London. I’m fine and I will update you as soon as I can.’
Fans of the star quickly sent their love, and were relieved to hear Paul was doing okay.
More to come…
