Rich Hall, That’ll Be The Day, Children’s Halloween and Paul Zerdin at the Memorial

THERE’S an exciting line-up with something for all ages coming up at the Memorial Theatre over the next month or so.

On Saturday 16th October at 8.00 pm, the theatre welcomes Rich Hall’s Hoedown Deluxe! 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), as sold out crowds across the UK have attested. Fans keep returning because this show goes where other comedians wouldn’t dare: Barrow-in-Furness for example. 

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’s also a stalwart of QI and Have I Got News For You. But seeing the Hoedown is a whole different experience. Gut-busting, rib-tickling and toe-tapping, Rich Hall’s Hoedown Deluxe covers the full anatomical spectrum.
