What people are saying about Rich Hall
Rated 4 out of 5 by Shez from Rich Hall great; others not so much Rich Hall was hilarious as usual. It was worth going just to see him! As usual with these 3-comedian lineups, the first two comedians were newer and, sadly, weaker. I'm afraid I can't even remember their names. The first guy did a comedic magic act, which occasionally made me smile. His content and regional accent gave his show a grimy 1970s feel, and not in a good way. The second guy was slightly funnier but insisted on wheezing into the microphone as though he was trying to contain laughter. Didn't work for me. But his skit about draughts was genuinely funny. Overall, I enjoyed the 'festival' atmosphere and the jazz act was very enjoyable. I'd definitely go again

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kath from Poor Rich at the Middleton Arena I love Rich Hall. My tivo box automatically records any instance he's on the telly so I jumped at the chance to see him live in Manchester. I was suprised at the venue, the Middleton Arena, expecting the Comedy Club or a large pub in the city. Instead we had a glorified bingo hall with facilities not all open. And poor Rich. He looked tired and burnt out at the tail end of his tour. The venue would not have helped his mood nor the lack of water to keep him going. He was funny in that marvelous ascerbic way, bringing out the best and worst of his chosen topic. Nothing is safe! I chuckled and giggled through it, loving his attacks at people who got up and left the room during his performance, egging us all on to join in on the joke. I was dissappointed at how exausted he seemed but enjoyed the humour and the songs. I would love to see him again in a venue that allowed his comic genius to thrive. And gave him adequate water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lexy20 from Absolutely brilliant! I had wanted to see Rich Hall for years and never managed it so was really looking forward to this and he did not disappoint. Brilliantly funny, fantastic observations about the local area (he must really do his homework) and wicked audience interaction - don't dare be a latecomer to one of his shows! One of the best stand-ups I've ever seen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by minideb from Best Greenwich Comedy Festival to date I took my daughter to the Greenwich Comedy Festival as a sixteenth Birthday present. The venue of The Royal Naval college was great and the show was the best we'd seen at this event. Rich Hall was superb and Jason Burn brilliant! I would highly recommend the comedy festival as an event to note in your diary. See you next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dickie D from One of the best around Rich Hall's got to be one of the most underrated comedians. He should be selling out massive stadiums. He tours regularly - so grab the chance to see him whenever you can. Guaranteed to have you in stitches.
