Never has there been a better time to be an American comedian in the UK. Hall’s precision dismantling of the tenuous relationship between the two countries is as freewheeling and deadly accurate as ever.
This Hoedown tour begins as a withering dissection of Trump’s America and all of its twists and turns, but ends up in a celebration of Americana. There’s stand-up, improvised ballads, cracking good musicianship, and ultimately a hilarious, foot-stomping, shit-kicking good time to be had by all. Even if you don’t own a hoe.
Rich’s most recent critically acclaimed BBC Four documentaries, ‘Rich Hall’s Countrier Than You’ and ‘Rich Hall’s Presidential Grudge Match’, as well as his BBC Radio 4 series ‘Rich Hall’s (US Election) Breakdown’ and ‘Rich Hall’s (US) Breakdown’ have built him a whole new legion of followers, as have appearances on BBC One’s Have I Got News For You and BBC Two’s QI.
But if you’ve only ever seen Hall on TV, you’ve short-changed yourself.
