Rich Hall’s grouchy, deadpan style, talent for absurdist irony and reputation as the king of rapid-fire wit has seen him become a TV star in the UK with his expertly-crafted tirades and quick banter with audiences earning him regular appearances on Channel 4’s Stand Up For The Week, QI, Live At The Apollo, Channel 4’s Comedy Gala Live At The O2 and Have I Got News For You.
He’s also created offbeat BBC2 and BBC4 documentaries including Rich Hall’s Cattle Drive, Rich Hall’s Continental Drifters, Rich Hall’s The Dirty South, How The West Was Lost, Rich Hall’s Gone Fishing, Otis Lee Crenshaw – London Not Tennessee and his most recent one Rich Hall’s Californian Stars.
The award-winning Montana native has been described as a transatlantic messenger lampooning each country he visits with his common sense, though he is no less harsh to his homeland.
