Rich Hall is perhaps one of America’s most treasured comedy exports on these shores. An expert chronicler of the foibles of our ‘special relationship’ with our cousins across the pond, he combines precise dry wit with a genuine love of his country, warts and all. Whether he’s performing as himself, his recently resurrected alter-ego Otis Lee Crenshaw, or proving an excellent documentarian with his work for BBC Four such as Rich Hall’s Presidential Grudge Match or Rich Hall’s The Dirty South, he’s always a welcome presence.
As part of his Hoedown tour, Hall is playing seven dates across Scotland in February.
Monday 19th February – The Tivoli Theatre, Aberdeen
Tuesday 20th February – Eden Court, Inverness
Wednesday 21st February – Bowls Hall, Shetland
Thursday, 22nd February – Universal Hall, Findhorn
Friday, 23rd February – The Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh
Saturday, 24th February – Albert Halls, Stirling
Sunday, 25th February – Webster Memorial Theatre, Arbroath
Expect his usual acerbic stand-up to be pointed firmly on the current situation stateside; but also expect a real celebration of good ol’ Americana. Confederate flags very definitely optional. So for those who occupy the rarified position of being both horrified at American politics yet fond of a good stomp-along, this is definitely essential.
