Spilsby Theatre is currently placed 21st out of the 36 theatres across England most at risk, previously ranking at 16th in 2015.
Ó Briain has called on everyone who cares about theatre to join the campaign to protect them, and has presented a video campaign to raise awareness of the plight of the theatres.
Dara Ó Briain said: “As a touring standup comedian I have travelled up and down this country and worked in many of the theatres here and you have a unique and rich heritage of theatres that were built in the last 200 years. But we can’t take that for granted. “
