Two outstanding television comedians are to brighten up Aberdeen’s spring next year as part of their UK tours.

QI regular and star of the critically acclaimed BBC 4 documentaries ‘Rich Hall’s The Dirty South’ and ‘How The West Was Lost’, laconic US comedian Rich Hall is to play the city’s Lemon Tree on Monday and Tuesday, March 19 and 20, while new host of Channel 4’s ‘Stand Up For The Week’ and ‘8 Out Of 10 Cats’ team captain Jon Richardson will be on the same stage a week later on Monday, March 26.

Tickets for all three laughter nights go on sale this Friday (October 21) available online at, by phone at 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office at the Music Hall, HMT and The Lemon Tree.

Rich’s renowned deadpan style has established him as a master of absurdist irony and king of rapid-fire wit. Fans can see the comic from Montana discuss a variety of topics, delivered in his own hilarious way. Since appearing as his redneck alter-ego Otis Lee Crenshaw in 1998, Rich has won critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe, on sell-out UK tours and at comedy festivals worldwide. Meanwhile, Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and best-selling author Jon will be taking his show, Funny Magnet, to The Lemon Tree, discussing the everyday items that have a profound effect on his outlook.
