The Olympia Theatre, Dublin: 11th November, 2018. Tickets on sale this Thursday at 9am.
Rich Hall’s critically acclaimed new show begins its second leg of touring. There has never been a better time to be an American comedian to be on tour. Hall’s BBC Four documentaries, most recently Rich Hall’s Countrier Than You and Rich Hall’s Presidential Grudge Match and BBC Radio 4 series Rich Hall’s (US Election) Breakdown have built him a new legion of followers, as has appearances on Have I Got News For You and QI. But if you’ve only ever seen Hall on TV, you’ve short-changed yourself.
“As close as it gets to a guaranteed good show” (Scotland on Sunday)
The Hoedown begins as a withering dissection of Trump’s America, but ends up being 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. Even if you don’t own a hoe.
“Blissfully Funny” (Guardian)
