Rich Hall’s Hoedown brings the US comedian to The Lowry this December

Rich Hall and his Hoedown band will continue to delight audiences with this legendary show by extending the tour into autumn 2018. Tickets for an extra 50 dates are now on sale!

Rich Hall’s Hoedown autumn tour kicks off with 3 nights at Bristol’s Redgrave Theatre in September and continues until December 2018, including one night at Dublin’s Olympia on 11th November. Please see full listings information below. Tickets are on sale from www.offthekerb.com.

Never has there been a better time to be an American comedian in the UK. Hall’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, shit-kicking good time to be had by all. Even if you don’t own a hoe.

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’ and ‘Rich Hall’s (US) 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 newest documentary ‘Rich Hall’s Working For The American Dream’ aired on BBC Four on Wednesday 4th July at 9pm and saw Rich explore the origins of the American Dream and whether it’s still attainable.

Rich Hall’s grouchy, deadpan style has established him as a master of absurdist irony and the king of rapid-fire wit. Notable UK appearances 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.offthekerb.co.uk.
