American comedian returns to the Grand Theatre in Lancaster next month with a new show.

The Virginia born comedian, known for his “grouchy, deadpan” style, cites his main influence as actor Bill Murray.

He has presented critically acclaimed BBC 4 documentaries includiing Rich Hall’s Continental Drifters, Rich Hall’s Dirty South and How The West Was Lost, as well as making regular stand up appearances on BBC1’s Live At The Apollo.

Described as a “master of absurdist irony and the king of rapid fire wit”, the 59-year-old is well known for his expertly crafter tirades and quick fire banter with audiences.

He is one of the few American stand-up comedians that regularly saddles up to leave his home country.

He has been described as a transatlantic messenger lampooning each country he visits with his common sense, and he is no less harsh to his homeland.

He has won the Perrier Award at Edinburgh Comedy Festival and the Barry at Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and has appeared on multiple UK TV comedy panel shows.

He performs at The Grand Theatre in St Leonardsgate, Lancaster on Sunday April 13 at 8pm.

Tickets for the show are priced £15, from box office on 01524 64695.
