A great time to be an Amer­i­can co­me­dian


Caernarfon Herald - - YOUR GUIDE -

RICH Hall’s Hoe­down Au­tumn tour will stop off at the Ga­leri Caernar­fon this De­cem­ber. Never has there been a bet­ter time to be an Amer­i­can co­me­dian in the UK, as Rich ’s pre­ci­sion dis­man­tling of the ten­u­ous re­la­tion­ship be­tween the two coun­tries is as free­wheel­ing and deadly ac­cu­rate as ever.

This Hoe­down tour be­gins as a with­er­ing dis­sec­tion of Trump’s Amer­ica and all of its twists and turns, but ends up in a cel­e­bra­tion of Amer­i­cana.

There’s stand-up, improvised bal­lads, crack­ing good mu­si­cian­ship, and, ul­ti­mately, a hi­lar­i­ous, foot- stomp­ing good time to be had by all.

Rich’s most re­cent crit­i­cally- ac­claimed BBC Four doc­u­men­taries, Rich Hall’s Coun­trier Than You and Rich Hall’s Pres­i­den­tial Grudge Match, as well as his BBC Ra­dio 4 se­ries Rich Hall’s (US Elec­tion) Break­down, have built him a whole new le­gion of fol­low­ers, as have ap­pear­ances on BBC One’s Have I Got News For You and BBC Two’s QI.

But, if you’ve only ever seen Hall on TV, you’ve short-changed your­self.

His grouchy, dead­pan style has es­tab­lished him as a master of ab­sur­dist irony and the king of rapid-fire wit.

No­table UK per­for­mances in­clude reg­u­lar ap­pear­ances on Very Bri­tish Prob­lems (Chan­nel 4), Stand Up For The Week (Chan­nel 4), Live At The Apollo (BBC1), Chan­nel 4’s Com­edy Gala Live At The O2, Have I Got News For You (BBC1), Rich Hall’s Cat­tle Drive (BBC4), Rich Hall’s Gone Fish­ing (BBC4), Otis Lee Cren­shaw – Lon­don Not Ten­nessee (BBC2), and Never Mind The Buz­zcocks (BBC2).

Rich’s latest au­dio CD ‘Work­ing Dog’ is cur­rently avail­able to buy on CD and down­load now from store.off thekerb.co.uk
