A Rich vein of comedy
Deadpand American comedian Rich Hall is bringing his brand of comedy from Montana to Worcester.
Hall, who is renowned for his "grouchy" style which has established him as a master of irony and king of wit, will be at Huntingdon Hall on Thursday, May 3 at 8pm.
He is the star of critically acclaimed BBC 4 documentaries Rich Hall’s Continental Drifters, Rich Hall’s The Dirty South, How The West Was Lost and Channel 4’s topical late night show Stand Up For The Week.
Since appearing in the guise of his red neck alter-ego Otis Lee Crenshaw in 1998, the award-winning comedian has won critical acclaim across the world by performing to sell-out audiences each year at the Edinburgh Fringe, sell-out UK tours and at comedy festivals worldwide.
Once a hurricane namer for the United States Meteorological Service, Hall began his career as a comedian through the creation of Crenshaw, who has been performing to sell-out audiences each year at the Edinburgh Festival, throughout the UK and at several festivals in Australia.
Performing stand-up as himself, Hall likes to poke fun at his fellow Americans and life across the pond at every opportunity.
He has visited the Edinburgh Fringe Festival several times and performed at the major comedy clubs in Britain and across the world.
He is well known in the United States for appearing and writing on The David Letterman Show, for which he won two Emmy Awards.
