MAN of many talent Richard Digance promises an evening of laughter and music at The Bear Pit in Stratford on Sunday July 13.
Many people sing, play guitar and tell stories, but few, if any, can claim to have supported comedy superstars Steve Martin and Robin Williams or played a guitar duet with rock legend Brian May of Queen fame.
He has also made his own TV specials, and if that was not enough has even made a name for himself as a poet, winning many favourable reviews.
He started out in folk clubs, and it was not long before he was making a name for himself as far more than just a singer-songwriter.
Digance’s diverse career has been acknowledged through numerous awards within both the music and entertainment industries, from a BAFTA Nomination as a TV entertainer to a Gold Award from The British Academy of Composers and Songwriters.
He is also included in The Virgin Anthology of Songwriters for his important contribution to British comedy songwriting.
He is one of those rare performers who is respected by comedians for his original material and by musicians for being an accomplished performer/guitarist.
He has survived all trends with his two hour one-man show, and is now entertainer cited by many younger comedians, including Ross Noble, as one of their major influences.
Tickets priced from £15 are available from The Bear Pit by calling 01789 403416 or in person at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.
The Bear Pit is voluntary organisation and theatre based at the United Reformed Church in Rother Street.
