Star of the recent critically acclaimed BBC4 documentary, How the West Was Lost, Edinburgh fringe favourite and Perrier Award winner Rich Hall is back on the road.

He is well known in the United States for appearing and writing on The David Letterman Show - for which he won an Emmy Award.
Rich Hall has been charming sell-out audiences each year at the Edinburgh Festival, on tours throughout the UK, at several festivals in Australia including Adelaide and Melbourne and at London's famous Comedy Store.
