Rich Hall

A grouchy, deadpan, comic genius, Rich Hall quit his job as a hurricane namer for the United States Meteorological Service eighteen years ago and hasn't looked back. The popular stand-up comedian is a regular on the international comedy scene including frequent appearances at the Edinburgh Festival and every major comedy club in the UK.

Perrier Award winner, TV star and supreme stand-up, Rich Hall is one of the most successful comedians of this generation.

From hurricane namer for the United States Meteorological Service to massive international comedy star, Rich Hall is master of ‘absurdist irony’ and his appearance on the David Letterman Show garnered him an Emmy award.

He is a supremely talented comedian, quick-witted, topical and charismatic on Buzzcocks, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, Jack Dee's Sunday Service and Edinburgh Nights.

He has also been a regular on the international comedy scene including regular appearances at the Edinburgh Festival, and every major comedy club in the UK. Selling out gigs and touring the world, Rich’s deadpan humour has won him a global fan base.

In 1998 redneck jailbird Otis Lee Crenshaw was born – married seven times, each time to a woman named Brenda, his whisky-soaked blues, sung by his creator Rich Hall, have graced the stage at every international comedy festival in consistently sell-out shows.

His gigs at the London’s Comedy Store proved that Rich had broken through the ranks of jobbing comedians, to establish himself as one of the world’s funniest men.

Perfect for awards ceremonies and hosting, Rich’s comedic genius won’t fail to have any audience in stitches.
