Welcome to the Hippodrome

  One of the UK's largest community run theatres

Todmorden Hippodrome are delighted to announce an evening with TV comedy worrier extraordinaire

JON RICHARDSON

DATE CHANGE - Monday 9th July 2018

Jon Richardson is a worrier. He worries that England might win a football match against Sweden this weekend and if they do, they might then have to play another one on the very night that he booked to do a show in Todmorden. He then worries that either he, or worse, the entire England team, might feel very lonely that night.  Therefore, to save Jon from all this stress, we're changing the date of the gig to Monday 9th July.  All tickets bought for Wednesday will be honoured.   If you have any queries please email us at [email protected].

   

The British Comedy Award nominee and star of Live At The Apollo and 8 Out Of 10 Cats is embarking on a nationwide tour to complain about the state of the world and offer no solutions whatsoever. 

Since his last show he has become a husband and father, seen the UK vote to leave the EU and watched the rise of Donald Trump, all of which leaves him asking one question, why does it seem that no one else alive can correctly load a dishwasher?

Come and see what Jon Richardson can do with words when he has more than thirty seconds to work with. Or should that be “with which to work”?

Best known as team captain on ‘8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown’, Jon has been massively in demand for television and radio appearances including; 'Have I Got News For You’ (BBC ONE), ‘Live At The Apollo’ (BBC ONE), ‘Channel 4’s Comedy Gala Live At The 02’ and most recently ‘Taskmaster’ (DAVE).
