His long-delayed and eagerly anticipated ‘Hoedown Deluxe’ tour will visit a trio of east coast theatres after the shows - originally scheduled for June 2020 - were hit by a mammoth series of Covid-delays and had to be rescheduled.

Ever-evolving, ever-changing, Rich’s combination of keen acerbic stand-up combined with spit and sawdust alt-country lyricism is a “win-win” (GUARDIAN), to which sold-out crowds across the UK have attested.

Fans keep returning because this show goes where other comedians wouldn’t dare. Rich’s acclaimed BBC4 documentaries - most recently Rich Hall’s Red Menace - and his Radio 4 series, ‘Election Breakdown’, have established a whole new legion of followers. He is also a stalwart of QI and Have I Got News For You. But seeing the Hoedown is a whole different experience.

Doug Taylor, from promoters Mint of Montrose, said: “We are so happy to see Rich’s shows finally coming to a theatre near you after so many delays and re-schedules due to the pandemic. The chance to see Rich’s brilliant mix of comedy and music in the intimate splendour of these great wee theatres will be one of our highlights of 2022. The shows are heading for sell-out, so we’d encourage folks to snap up the remaining tickets quickly.”

The show will be at Arbroath’s Webster Theatre on September 8 and The Whitehall in Dundee on September 9. Tickets are available from venue box offices and online at
