COMEDIAN Rich Hall stops off at Stratford ArtsHouse on his 3:10 to Humour tour.
Well known to British audiences as a panelist on QI and Have I Got News For You, the Montana native will be in Stratford on Friday February 20.
His grouchy, deadpan style has established him as a master of absurdist irony and the king of rapid-fire wit.
He has made a string of acclaimed BBC 4 documentaries including Rich Hall’s Continental Drifters, Rich Hall’s The Dirty South and ‘How The West Was Lost.
He started his comedy career literally on the streets – with a suitcase and stand, travelling the college circuit, and performing impromptu skits for gathering crowds
Hall’s first professional work was as a writer and performer on the American sketch comedy TV series Fridays in the early 1980s, and he then co-wrote and starred in the satirical comedy series Not Necessarily the News, and was also a regular on Saturday Night Live.
He has hosted his own specials and talks shows, as well as appearing on many of America’s most popular talk shows.
Simpsons creator Matt Groening has described Hall as the inspiration for bartender Moe Szyslak.
