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.
