November at King’s Lynn
There’s plenty on at the King’s Lynn Corn Exchange this month, here’s a few of the highlights…
Friday 11 November | 8pm | £17.00
The award-winning Montana native renowned for his expertly crafted tirades and quick fire banter, returns.
His critically acclaimed grouchy, deadpan style has established him as a master of absurdist irony and king of rapid-fire wit. His BBC 4 documentaries Rich Hall’s California Stars, Rich Hall’s You Can Go To Hell, I’m Going to Texas and Rich Hall’s Inventing the Indian, together with his current four part series on BBC Radio 4 Rich Hall’s (US Election) Breakdown, as well as numerous regular TV appearances, stand testimony to his plain spoken, growling indignation and acerbic observations.
An award winner, Rich Hall has been described as a transatlantic messenger, lampooning each country he visits with his common sense. His unerring talent to hit his targets with precision every time leaves his audience hanging on his every word winning him fans all over the globe.
