COMEDIAN Jeremy Hardy hits the road in 2018 with his new show Jeremy Hardy Live which sees him at his politically astute best but paying more attention to the human condition
Following a sell-out tour last year and with Brexit, Trump and the world in general, Jeremy has plenty to talk about, but who is the man behind the mirth? What makes him tick? What keeps him awake at night? What does he fear, and hope for?
Jeremy is enjoying his fourth decade as a stand-up comedian. That’s a more dramatic way of saying he started 34 years ago and, without a lottery win, probably has at least another 34 years to go.
He’s managed to pack a fair bit into his career already though, what with being part of the furniture of BBC Radio 4, TV work such as Now Something Else with Rory Bremner, Blackadder Goes Forth, and Jack Dee’s Helpdesk, and films such as Hotel, How to Be and Jeremy Hardy v the Israeli Army.
He has written columns for The Guardian and Red Pepper as well as three books: When Did You Last See Your Father, Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation, and My Family and Other Strangers.
Back in 1988 Jeremy won the Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Festival, and in 1991 he bagged Best Live Act at the ITV Comedy Awards.
Since then he has never stopped gigging and there’s a good chance he’s performed in every town in the UK, well, once he’s performed at Huntingdon Hall in Worcester for the first time!
The event starts at 7.30pm on Thursday, May 24 and tickets are £14 or £5 for those unemployed.
