As one of the stand out stand-up exports from America, the Montana-born comic Rich Hall has been a definitive voice in the British comedy conversation for quite some time.

With appearances on QI, Cats Do Countdown, Live at the Apollo and Have I Got News For You, Hall is a certified comedy mainstay whose acerbic and droll wit is as deceptively cutting as it is dry and heartless. 

Constantly irate and always ruthlessly honest, there is a prowess to his disgruntled styling that many comics try to replicate but few can perfect. Riding high on the wave of his latest memoir, Nailing It, the comedic curmudgeon is back with several shows in the region, including The Witham in Barnard Castle, the Forum in Northallerton, Alnwick Playhouse and Queen’s Hall Hexham, which promise to be a rollercoaster of comedy.

While previous tours have blasted an onslaught of bracing improvisation, crushing interactions and pristine slices of satirical, cultural lunacy, the ferocious comic is never far from a musical interlude and a dynamic change of pace. If comedy is about misdirection, there is no act more likely to keep you guessing than the master that is Rich Hall, promising that although you pay for the whole seat, you’ll only need the edge of it.

Rich Hall performs at The Witham, Barnard Castle on Wednesday 14th, The Forum Northallerton on Thursday 15th, Alnwick Playhouse on Friday 16th and Queen’s Hall Hexham on Saturday 17th September.
