Rich Hall’s Hoedown

RICH HALL’S HOEDOWN
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 in the UK. Hall’s precision dismantling of the tenuous relationship between two countries is as freewheeling and deadly accurate as ever. His 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

Sadly this show was spoilt by the fact that much of what Ruch Hall said was inaudible from where we were sitting, row M seats 3&4. We don’t know whether this was due to the sound system being poor, the sound system being too loud, Rich Hall being too close to the Mike, Rich hall frequently mumbling and dropping his voice, or a combination of these factors. We have seen and heard Rich on numerous occasions on TV, radio and video and never had any problems hearing him. Sadly, as we missed a large part of what he was saying, the evening was spoilt. Deeply frustrating.
