BBC New Comedy Award finalist and UK comedy circuit favourite Russ Peers is bringing his hilarious debut hour show ‘Hereditary Peers’ to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2018! Don’t miss this brand new show at Just The Tonic’s The Grassmarket Centre (The Meeting Room) from Thursday 2nd – Sunday 26th August (not 13th) at 7.10pm!

Living in London and attending swanky dinner parties, a lot has changed for Russ since his days working at a supermarket checkout in Cumbria…his life may seem very different to his parents' but is it? Does his impatience and need to switch off lights come from his Dad? Does his need to please come from his Mum? And why drag up as Madonna? Does he fight this or give in to being Hereditary Peers?

With his laid-back Northern charm and his marvellous anecdotal style, Russ has audiences rolling in the aisles as he takes aim at all aspect of his life and regales with stories from his journey from Northern pathos to Southern sophistication.

RICH HALL'S 'HOEDOWN' EXTRA DATES FOR AUTUMN 2018 ANNOUNCED

Rich Hall and his Hoedown band will continue to delight audiences with this legendary show by extending the tour into autumn 2018. Tickets for an extra 44 dates are now on sale!

Rich Hall’s Hoedown autumn tour continues until December 2018, including one night at Dublin’s Olympia on 11th November. Please see full listings information below. Tickets are on sale from offthekerb.co.uk.

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 tour begins as a withering dissection of Tr ump’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.
