Comedian Jeremy Hardy is back on the road this autumn and will be stopping off to perform a show at the Kettering Arts Centre next week.

In his new show, Jeremy will be talking about a huge array of subjects such as death, CBeebies, Michael Gove, hip hop, gender, class, ego, Blue Peter, Leni Riefenstahl and misogyny.

Jeremy became a stand-up comic in 1984 and since then his live work has included the Just For Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where he won the prestigious Perrier Award.

Hardy is a regular on several Radio 4 shows including The News Quiz, I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue, Hamish and Dougall and Just A Minute.

In 2010, Jeremy’s book My Family And Other Strangers was published, chronicling his search for interesting ancestors. He has also written When Did You Last See Your Father. He has a regular column in The Guardian.

The Arts Centre is at St Andrew’s Church in Kettering, on the corner of Rockingham Road. The show will take place on Thursday, October 10, at 8pm. Tickets cost £14 or £5. See for more information.
