Rich Hall at the Assembly Hall

tickets are now on sale for the visit of Rich Hall to Melksham Assembly Hall on Thursday 27th October.

Rich’s critically acclaimed grouchy, deadpan style has established him as a master of absurdist irony and the king of rapid-fire wit.

The award-winning Montana native renowned for his expertly crafted tirades and quick fire banter with audiences and delightful musical sequences saddles up and hitches his wagon to tour the UK once again with Melksham one of the dates.

This is a comedian whose plain spoken growling indignation and acerbic observations have an unerring talent for hitting his targets with precision every time, leaving his audience hanging on every word winning him fans all over the globe.

Perrier (Edinburgh Comedy Festival) Award and Barry (Melbourne International Comedy Festival) Award winner Hall has been described as a transatlantic messenger lampooning each country he visits with his common sense, and he is no less harsh to his homeland.

Tributes include:

“Now is the time to grab this chance to see the great man at work” – The Guardian; “captivating and brilliant… ability to make the room guffaw was worthy of standing applause” – Sunday Mirror; “As close as it gets to a guaranteed good show” – Scotland On Sunday; “Rich Hall is a comedy phenomenon” – The Sun.

Rich has also become well known for his television and radio work. Notable UK appearances include regular appearances on Very British Problems (Channel 4), Stand Up For The Week (Channel 4), QI (BBC1/2), 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), Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC2) and his most recent BBC4 documentary Rich Hall’s Californian Stars.

“Creeps up on you and ambushes your funny bone like no one else” – The Scotsman; “Top drawer stuff from a comedian who just seems to get better and better” – STV

Other strings to his bow include writing for The David Letterman Show, which he won two Emmy’s for and was the inspiration behind Matt Groening’s character Moe Szyslak from The Simpsons. Rich is also an accomplished author; he has released three books, Magnificent Bastards, I Blame Society and Things Snowballs, all released by Abacus Books. He has also released two very successful stand-up DVDs in 2001 and 2009 through Universal Pictures UK. Rich Hall’s latest audio CD Waitin’ on a Grammy is available to buy on CD and download now at http://store.offthe kerb.co.uk
