Rich Hall's Hoedown
Rich Hall’s critically acclaimed new show begins its second leg of touring. 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 have 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. 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.
Venue: Pentland Theatre
“As close as it gets to a guaranteed good show" Scotland on Sunday
“Blissfully funny” The Guardian
"Immaculate wordplay imbued with a genuine passion for the songwriter’s craft" ★★★★ The Times
"Topical with sharp, well-honed observations" ★★★★ The Scotsman (read the full review)
"It could well be the music as much as the comedy that’s the attraction. Rich Hall is a brilliant stand-up, but also a fine songwriter and musician... finely-honed and delivered with his irresistible grumpy charisma ... Hall gets to demonstrate his aptitude for improvisation over some very decent tunes" ★★★★ The Wee Review (read the full review)
