He’s absolutely stormed it here before, and we can’t wait to welcome Jon Richardson back to Middlesbrough Town Hall with his brand-new show!

The British Comedy Award nominee and star of Live At The Apollo and 8 Out Of 10 Cats is embarking on a nationwide tour to complain about the state of the world and offer no solutions.

Since this last show he has become a husband and father, seen the UK vote to leave the EU and watched the rise of Donald Trump, all of which leaves him asking one question, why does it seem that no one else alive can correctly load a dishwasher?

Come and see what Jon Richardson can do with words when he has more than thirty seconds to work with. Or should that be “with which to work”?

A string of top TV credits including 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Have I Got News For You, Live At The Apollo, Channel 4’s Comedy Gala and Taskmaster have all helped establish Jon as one of the funniest and best loved comics in the country.


“Jon Richardson is developing into a quietly sophisticated comedian who is at turns hilarious and disturbing, and under no circumstances should you miss.” The Mirror.

“One of our most individual and interesting stand-ups.” The Times.

Sublimely brilliant, stunning …” Time Out.

“For 10 years he has been among the funniest men in Britain.” The Mirror.
