A deadpan American comic whose acerbic tongue was the inspiration for Moe, the barman in the TV show The Simpsons, is coming to Bristol next month.

Rich Hall and his live band will be performing the Hoedown show at Bristol’s Tobacco Factory Theatres next month.

The Perrier and Barry-award winning Hall, renowned for his expertly-crafted tirades and quickfire banter with his audiences, as well as amusing musical sequences, saddles up and hitches his wagon to tour the British Isles.

Hall is said to be ‘a transatlantic messenger lampooning each country he visits with his common sense’, and is no less harsh when slating his homeland.

He is known for his trademark grouchy, deadpan style of delivery and is described as a ‘master of absurdist irony and the king of rapid-fire wit’.

The Hoedown promises a ‘floor reeking of liquor and spent dreams’ as Rich and his virtuoso musical mates perform a gratuitous mash-up of music and comedy.

The busy Texan, who has starred in a series of BBC4 documentaries including Rich Hall’s Continental Drifters and Rich Hall’s You Can Go To Hell, I’m Going To Texas, is simultaneously touring Britain with his solo show, Rich Hall: Live 2016.

Rich has made regular TV appearances on Very British Problems, QI, Live At The Apollo and Have I Got News For You. He has also enjoyed stints on Channel 4’s Comedy Gala and Never Mind The Buzzcocks.

Rich Hall will be at the Tobacco Factory Theatres, in Raleigh Road, Bristol, at 8pm on September 6-8.

Tickets, priced £16.50, are available online via www.thecomedybox.co.uk or by calling 01179 020344.
