What's on


RICH HALL – SOLO SHOW – Sunday, 9th July

RICH HALL – Solo Show 


RICH HALL – “Shot From Cannons” 

Fresh on the heels of his critically acclaimed memoirs, Nailing It, Montana’s transatlantic messenger returns with new rants, knife-edge observations, thrilling musical interludes and an ever-formidable knack for laughs on the fly. You’ll pay for the whole seat, but you’ll only need the edge of it.

Multi-award-winning Rich Hall is renowned for his expertly crafted tirades, quick-fire banter with audiences and delightful musical sequences.

He has fronted the hugely successful BBC Four documentaries Rich Hall’s Red Menace, Rich Hall’s Working For The American Dream, Rich Hall’s Countrier Than You, Rich Hall’s Presidential Grudge Match, Rich Hall’s California Stars, Rich Hall’s You Can Go To Hell, I’m Going To Texas, and Rich Hall’s Inventing the Indian. 

Vital and incredulously angry. Hilarious.” – THE SCOTSMAN

“Blissfully funny.” – THE GUARDIAN

“As close as it gets to a guaranteed good show.” – SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY

“What supercharges all his material is that distinctively growly, grumpy delivery, barking out his observations with a disillusioned incomprehension that no one else has seen through this bullshit. His attitude is like the landscape of his native Montana: unchanging, craggy, impressive.” – CHORTLE

TICKETS: £16 plus booking fee
