Rich Hall's Hoedown Deluxe

Plowright Theatre, Scunthorpe, October 28/Lincoln Engine Shed November 25.

Comedy fans are in for when the American comic’s much-delayed tour finally makes it to two venues in the area later this year.Ever-evolving, ever-changing, Rich’s combination of keen acerbic stand-up combined with spit and sawdust alt-country lyricism has won him many fans in recent years, up and down the country.Fans keep returning because this show goes where other comedians wouldn’t dare: Barrow-in-Furness for example.Rich’s acclaimed BBC4 documentaries (most recently Rich Hall’s Red Menace) and his Radio 4 series Election Breakdown have established a whole new legion of followers.He’s also a stalwart of QI and Have I Got News For You too.
