Rich Hall’s Hoedown (comedy) Thu 22nd Feb 2018, 7.30pm

Thursday, February 22, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

As Rich Hall’s critically acclaimed new show rolls into the Universal Hall, there has never been a better time to be an American comedian in the UK. Hall’s precision dismantling of the tenuous relationship between two countries is as freewheeling and deadly accurate as ever. His BBC Four documentaries, most recently Rich Hall’s Countrier Than You and Rich Hall’s Presidential Grudge Match and BBC Radio 4 series Rich Hall’s (US Election) Breakdown have built him a new legion of followers, as has appearances on Have I Got News For You and QI. But if you’ve only ever seen Hall on TV, you’ve short-changed yourself. The Hoedown begins as a withering dissection of Trump’s America, but ends up being a celebration of Americana. Rich delivers stand-up, improvised ballads, and cracking good musicianship. A hilarious, foot-stomping, good time is to be had by all. Age advice: 14+

Writing in fRoots magazine, Tim Chipping said: “I’m convinced I have seen the most affectingly expressive singer since Amy Winehouse, backed by the new Punch Brothers.” The band was featured in the BBC 2 TV Highlights show filmed at the city’s Royal Concert Hall on the opening night.
