Rich Hall to entertain IOW this May

American comedian Rich Hall has something of an avid following in the UK, thanks to his frequent appearances on panel shows including QI, Have I Got News For You and Mock the Week. So we're quite ecstatic that he's chosen to visit us during his tour of the country this May, as part of the Isle of Arts Festival.

Hall's deadpan and grouchy style leaves fanatics hanging on his every word - from ramblings over the meaning of life to tirades directed at everyone and everything, he swings apparently at random from subject to subject.

But while his comedy stylings may sometimes appear erratic, the man is also more than capable of putting together a good argument, as proven by his critically acclaimed BBC 4 documentaries. These include ‘Rich Hall’s Continental Drifters’, ‘Rich Hall’s The Dirty South’’ and ‘How The West Was Lost’.

Don't just take our word that Hall's worth the £16 ticket price - he's got some great press from various critics. Declared "intelligent, passionate and angry comedy" by The Independent, "as close as it gets to a guaranteed good show" by Scotland on Sunday and "Rich Hall is a comedy phenomenon" by The Sun, it's definitely worth seeing him while he's in Blighty.

To witness the show, you'll need to be over the age of 14 and be at the Isle of Arts Marquee in Salisbury Gardens, Ventnor, at 8:45pm on May 4th. You'll chuckle your way through this award-winning routine, full of absurdist irony and rapid-fire wit. 

If you want to check out Hall's comic stylings beforehand, you can do so on Youtube, or you can just book your ferry tickets right now if you know you want to see him perform. After all, as The Guardian says: "Now is the time to grab this chance to see the great man at work."
