RICH HALL 2018 SPRING TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED

Following a hugely successful autumn 2017 tour, Rich Hall and his Hoedown band continue their second leg of touring their Hoedown show with an extra 36 dates announced for spring 2018. 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 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.

Rich Hall’s Hoedown spring tour kicks off in February 2018 with dates across the UK, including a return to Scotland for a 7-night run and 4 nights in London’s illustrious West End at the Leicester Square Theatre. Please see full listings
information below. All tickets are on sale now

SHAPPI KHORSANDI 'MISTRESS AND MISFIT' 2018 UK TOUR ANNOUNCED

Shappi Khorsandi presents England's unsung heroine, Emma, Lady Hamilton. For too many years she has been known as just Nelson's mistress, a bit of a harlot (you get one job in a brothel and bang goes your reputation). Women's lib wasn't a thing in Georgian times. Emma moved mountains to haul herself from scullery maid to Lady Hamilton ... and yes, she occasionally danced naked on tables to get ahead in life, but who hasn't? As a fellow naked dancer on tables, Shappi raises a glass to the woman England betrayed. 

Star of Live At The Apollo, Have I Got News for You and Q.I. Shappi Khorsandi is back on the road with her 2017 sell out Edinburgh Festival Fringe show ‘Mistress and Misfit’, travelling to 34 venues across the UK this coming spring. Please find a full list of tour dates and listings information below.

Shappi is a best-selling author having released ‘A Beginners Guide to Acting English’ in 2009, followed by her fantastic critically acclaimed debut novel ‘Nina Is Not OK’, published by Ebury in July 2016 and released in paperback in February 2017.
