Now is the time to grab this chance to see the great man at work” – The Guardian

 

“captivating and brilliant… ability to make the room guffaw was worthy of standing applause”– Sunday Mirror

Rich Hall is the star of the critically acclaimed BBC 4 documentaries Rich Hall’s California Stars, Rich Hall’s You Can Go To Hell, I’m Going To Texasand Rich Hall’s Inventing the Indian

Rich Hall’s critically acclaimed grouchy, deadpan style has established him as a master of absurdist irony and the king of rapid-fire wit. The award-winning Montana native renowned for his expertly crafted tirades and quick fire banter with audiences and delightful musical sequences saddles up and hitches his wagon to tour the British Isles once again. This is a comedian who's plain spoken growling indignation and acerbic observations have an unerring talent for hitting his targets with precision every time, leaving his audience hanging on every word winning him fans all over the globe.  Perrier (Edinburgh Comedy Festival) Award and Barry (Melbourne International Comedy Festival) Award winner Hall has been described as a transatlantic messenger lampooning each country he visits with his common sense, and he is no less harsh to his homeland.

“As close as it gets to a guaranteed good show”Scotland On Sunday

“Rich Hall is a comedy phenomenon”The Sun

‘Creeps up on you and ambushes your funny bone like no one else’The Scotsman

“Top drawer stuff from a comedian who just seems to get better and better” - STV

Other strings to his bow include writing for The David Letterman Show, which he won two Emmy’s for and was the inspiration behind Matt Groening’s character Moe Szyslak from The Simpsons. Rich is also an accomplished author, he has released three books, Magnificent Bastards, I Blame Society and Things Snowballs, all released by Abacus Books.
