The American comedian, songwriter and TV star is gearing up for the Evesham show

An American comedian, songwriter and TV star is set to appear in Worcestershire for another showpiece.

Rich Hall has been booked for a return to Evesham as part of his ‘Hoedown Deluxe’ tour.

The award-winning performer will perform at the Henrician Theatre, formerly Evesham Arts Centre, on Saturday June 11.

Hailed as “bitter stand-up comedy combined with spit-and-sawdust alt-country lyricism,” Hall’s show combines a unique blend of comedy and music for a night of all-around entertainment.

Tickets are already on sale and can be purchased for £17 on the Evesham Live website.

Born in Virginia, Rich Hall became popular in the UK with regular appearances on TV shows QI, Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and 8 Out Of 10 Cats.

He also appeared on BBC Two’s Top Gear, where he entertained former host Jeremy Clarkson and the public by writing a song about a Rover 25 car.

The 67-year-old won the Perrier Comedy Award in 2000 as Tennessean country musician and redneck prisoner Otis Lee Crenshaw.

In addition to comedy shows, he also writes and presents documentaries about the United States for BBC4.

Rich’s first professional job was as a writer and performer on the original David Letterman Show (1980) and the comedy sketch television series Fridays from 1980 to 1982.

Since finding success in the UK, Hall has created and starred in several series for the BBC, including comedies with Mike Wilmot and documentaries often about US cinema.
