RICH HALL'S HOEDOWN 2019 SPRING TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED

Rich Hall and his Hoedown band continue to delight audiences with this legendary show with 38 dates announced for spring 2019.

Rich Hall’s Hoedown spring tour kicks off in February and continues through until June 2019, including  3 nights at Glasgow Comedy Festival (The Garage, 14th – 16th March) and 4 nights at London’s Leicester Square Theatre (10th – 13th April). Please see full listings information below. Tickets are on sale now from www.offthekerb.com.

Never has there been a better time to be an American comedian in the UK. Hall’s precision dismantling of the tenuous relationship between the two countries is as freewheeling and deadly accurate as ever.

This Hoedown tourbegins as a withering dissection of Trump’s America and all of its twists and turns, but ends up in a celebration of Americana. There’s stand-up, improvised ballads, cracking good musicianship, and ultimately a hilarious, foot-stomping, shit-kicking good time to be had by all. Even if you don’t own a hoe.
