"Some of the most surprising and thought-provoking material coming from any comedian" The Guardian

 

"Bold cutting and, at times, ruthless" The Argus.

 

"This show is a genuine hidden treasure of the Fringe... ...Clever, insightful and funny, well structured jokes are set up and delivered intelligently and candidly. Top stuff." Chortle


GARETH RICHARDS

In October 2004 Gareth Richards did his first ever gig aboard the Wibbly Wobbly boat, a notorious venue compered by alternative comedy veteran Malcolm Hardy. After his set Malcolm shook his hand and said, "Was that really your first gig?”

"Yes,” said Gareth.

Malcolm said, "Yeah, I thought it was.”

Gareth Richards’ hilarious stand-up, silly jokes and gorgeously low-key comedy songs have made him an instant favourite on the comedy circuit. In 2010 he was nominated for Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer. 

Gareth has appeared on Russell Howard’s Good News, Live at the Electric (BBC3) and in January performed live on Radio 1 on two separate occasions. Gareth co-hosted Frank Skinner’s Sony award-winning Absolute Radio show for two years and supported Frank on his 2014 tour. 

WHAT THE PRESS HAS SAID ABOUT GARETH RICHARDS:

"A delightful hour of comedy”
The Guardian

"Clever craftsman with a big future”
Bruce Dessau, The Evening Standard

"An effortlessly assured act… exceptionally inspired and truly memorable.”
Steve Bennett, Chortle
