Rich Hall Comedian announces Burton Town Hall show

Rich Hall and his Hoedown band begin their second leg of touring this autumn with their Hoedown show for 2017.

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, good time to be had by all. Even if you don’t own a hoe.

Rich Hall’s Hoedown kicks off in September 2017 with over 40 dates announced so far across the UK and Ireland including Burton Town Hall

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.

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.

Rich Hall Hoedown will be at Burton Town Hall on Friday 6th October at 8pm. Tickets are £17 and are available on the Brewhouse Arts Centre website as well as with their Box Office team on 01283 508100
