Bristol Comedy Garden 2014: Rich Hall, Sara Pascoe, Rob Beckett, John Robins
Bristol Comedy Garden returns to the tranquil lawns of Queen Square for 5 days of comedy goodness in the Big Top.
Rich Hall’s critically acclaimed grouchy, deadpan style has established him as a master of absurdist irony and the king of rapid-fire wit. The award-winning Qi regular is world-renowned for his expertly crafted tirades and quick fire banter with audiences now saddles up and heads to Bristol Comedy Garden.
"Now is the time to grab this chance to see the great man at work" – The Guardian.
Joining Hall is the sublime Live At The Apollo star Sara Pascoe, fast-rising South London lad and 8 Out Of 10 Cats regular Rob Beckett and the charming John Robins as host.
(Please note – Rich Hall replaces Reginald D Hunter on this show, original tickets remain valid).
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Since appearing in the guise of his redneck alter-ego Otis Lee Crenshaw in 1998, award-winning Rich has won critical acclaim across the Globe by performing to sell-out audiences each year at the Edinburgh Fringe, throughout sell-out UK tours and at comedy festivals worldwide.
Rich has also become well known for his television and radio work. Notable UK appearances include regular appearances on 'Stand Up For The Week' (Channel 4), 'QI' (BBC1/2), 'Live At The Apollo' (BBC1), 'Channel 4's Comedy Gala Live At The O2', 'Have I Got News For You' (BBC1), 'Rich Hall's Cattle Drive' (BBC4), 'Rich Hall's Gone Fishing' (BBC4), 'Otis Lee Crenshaw – London Not Tennessee' (BBC2) and 'Never Mind The Buzzcocks' (BBC2).

Sara Pascoe is a British writer, stand-up comedian and actress. She has appeared in a number of television programmes - Campus, Live At The Apollo, QI, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Mock The Week among others - as well as an all-female sketch show and her own Edinburgh show, and runs comedy club The House Of Mirth.
Sara's stand-up is influenced by her joint favourite heroes, Jodie Marsh and Winston Churchill.
'Always intelligent and occasionally exquisite' (The Independent)
'Pascoe uses erudite references as just one strand of an offbeat worldview, offset by moments of gloriously deliberate dumbness and delivered with nothing less than full-megawatt charisma' (The Guardian)
'... defiantly idiosyncratic and highly accessible' (Evening Standard).
Sara Pascoe tour dates
Rob grew up in south east London in a large extended family of taxi drivers where it was a fight to be heard.
As a middle child desperate for attention he needed to be funny so was in awe of his Grandad's jokes, but only until he saw a Tommy Cooper video and realised Grandad Cook was a massive plagiarist.
'A little short of a revelation (The Scotsman)
'Relentlessly smiley, perpetually grinning Londoner whose unshowy, unpretentious but thoroughly funny shtick has every chance of winning him a big audience' (The Guardian)
'He already has the confidence of a veteran' (The Times)
'Joyous, cheek aching and touching stand up' (Shortlist).

'Like discovering buried treasure' (Fest)
