And he will soon be taking his comedic talents to The Castle in Wellingborough, when he performs a stand-up show as part of his latest tour, on Thursday, March 21, at 8pm.

Star of the critically acclaimed BBC 4 documentaries Rich Hall’s Continental Drifters, The Dirty South and How The West Was Lost, this American comedian is known for his absurdist irony and for being the king of rapid-fire wit.

A spokesman for the theatre said: “Fans can see the comic genius from Montana discuss a variety of topics all delivered in his own hilarious unique way.

“Since appearing in the guise of his redneck alter-ego Otis Lee Crenshaw in 1998, award-winning Rich has won critical acclaim across the globe by performing to sell-out audiences each year at the Edinburgh Fringe, thoughout UK tours and at comedy festivals worldwide.”
