Never miss another 'Gareth Richards' show
Fosters Comedy Crack Up: Gareth Richards, Mark Smith
Fosters Comedy Crack Up is back with another winning line-up to tickle your funny bone.
Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominee 2010, Gareth Richards is probably best known for his two years of co-hosting the Sony Gold Award winning Frank Skinner's Absolute Radio Show. In 2011 he completed a Soho Theatre run of his Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominated show, Stand Up Between Song, and appeared on Russell Howard's Good News (BBC Three).
In 2010, he was placed in the top 10 of Dave's Funniest Joke of the Fringe. In 2008 Gareth was nominated for the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year Award, and later won a place as part of the Comedy Reserve.
Previously he was a finalist in the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year 2007 competition, and a runner-up in the finals of You Must Be Joking and the Amused Moose Laugh-Off.
'Gorgeously low-key, faintly surreal songs played on the Omnichord... A delightful hour of comedy' (The Guardian)
'He’s a quietly clever craftsman with a big future' (Bruce Dessau, The Evening
'An effortlessly assured act... exceptionally inspired and truly memorable... His material has a delicious otherworldly quality' (Chortle).

Mark has been performing stand-up regularly since mid 2008 and has rapidly established himself as one of the most interesting and exciting young comics on the circuit.
Aside from regular gigs, he also runs and comperes his own night in Leeds, Gag Hole, which has quickly become one of the best alternative comedy events in the city. He has just returned from directing Leeds Tealights at the Edinburgh Fringe (Best Student Sketch Show 2010).
He is also half of double act Dregs with Max Dickens
