Have been a big fan of the grouchy, American deadpan,comic Rich Hall who quit his job as a hurricane namer for the United States Meteorological Service two decades ago and hasn’t looked back.
Looking like a Pearl Jam roadie, Rich is a master of absurdist irony while eschewing the human condition. He particularly likes to lay into Americans and life across the Pond at every opportunity. As Rich Hall the stand-up, he has visited the Edinburgh Fringe Festival several times and performed at the major comedy clubs in Britain and across the world. He is well known in the United States for appearing and writing on The David Letterman Show – for which he won two Emmy Awards.
So it was great to catch up with him at The Stables Wavendon near Milton Keynes. Unfortunately they operate a strict zero tolerance on photography, hence no photos except the one afterwards.
