Rich Hall is a US comedian with a sharp, dry sense of humour that suits British tastes as much as those of his fellow countrymen, but regardless of which side of the big pond he plies his wares, Rich is certainly a success with audiences!
Rich rose to fame here in the UK through numerous appearances on panel shows such as QI, 8 Out of Ten Cats, Have I Got News For You, Top Gear, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Jack Dee’s Live at the Apollo. He has also had four BBC TV series of his own: Rich Hall's Badly Funded Think Tank, Rich Hall's Fishing Show, Rich Hall's Cattle Drive and Rich Hall's Election Special. More recently, Rich wrote and presented six 90-minute documentaries about film genres, broadcast on BBC 4.
Rich also wrote and acted in the play Levelland at the Edinburgh Festival in 2006, following this in 2008 with two stand-up shows around the UK and in 2009 with two further shows at the Edinburgh Festival. In 2010, he appeared as one of the stand-up acts on Channel 4's Comedy Gala, a benefit show organised by Channel 4 to raise money for Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital. In January 2015, Rich started a comedy tour of the UK called 3:10 To Humour, and this again proved to be a sell-out success.
In the USA, he has appeared on talk shows such as The Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night with Conan O'Brien. Creator of The Simpson’s, Matt Groening often describes him as the inspiration behind his character Moe Szyslak! Rich has also achieved popularity in Australia, regularly appearing at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Adelaide Fringe Festival, and on Australian comedy panel shows, such as The Glass House and Spicks and Specks.

He was brilliant and they loved him - He was as he seems, very laid back, got there in time, popped his head in the venue and was happy not to soundcheck. Got himself from his room to us and had them in stitches for the full 25mins. He then joined everyone for drinks until it ended at 1.30am and I caught up with him later in the resident's bar still drinking - goodness knows how he got up for the 6am taxi!! Please send him big thanks from us all - he made our night.
Thanks so much for all your help - it was a triumph!
