Rich Hall, the grouchy, deadpan, comic genius quit his job as a hurricane namer for the United States Meteorological Service eighteen years ago and has never looked back.
Since then he has won an Emmy for writing on The David Letterman Show, won the Perrier Award (the comedy equivalent to a Oscar) with his excellent character Otis Lee Crenshaw, and won the Edinburgh Critics Award, Twice!
Looking like a Pearl Jam roadie, Rich is a master of absurdist irony while eschewing the human condition. He particularly likes to lay it on Americans and life across the Pond at every opportunity. The world is a donkey ride to hell and Rich is your tour guide.
Rich is well known in the States for his numerous appearances on The Letterman Show and Saturday Night Live. In the UK, Rich has appeared on Have I Got News For You, Jack Dee's Sunday Service, host of The Jack Docherty Show and US reporter for The 11 O'Clock Show.
In 1998, Rich Hall created the character Otis Lee Crenshaw, a redneck jailbird from Tennessee, who has been married seven times, all to women named Brenda. A singer-songwriter, Otis writes bourbon-soaked, Tom Waitsian tunes and blends this with audience banter, producing a perfect fusion of music and comedy. At the Edinburgh Festival 2000, Rich Hall as Otis Lee Crenshaw won the prestigious Perrier Award. Rich's autobiography of his alter ego Otis, I Blame Society, was released in paperback.
However, Rich stripped of his Otis persona is a rather different proposition. Without the songs or band Rich riffs off the audience like a masterful jazz musician. Pure comedy gold.
'As close as it gets to a guaranteed good show' - Scotland On Sunday
'Rich Hall is a comedy phenomenon' - The Sun
Rich is also an accomplished author, he has released three books, Magnificent Bastards, I Blame Society and Things Snowballs, all released by Abacus Books. Hall has also released two very successful stand-up DVD’s in 2001 and 2009 through Universal Pictures UK.

Belly laughs and aching sides.....whimsical and splenetic. The man is and extempor powerhouse.' - The Times

'Now is the time to grab this chance to see the great man at work' - The Guardian
