 Rich Hall’s Hoedown at New Theatre Royal, Southsea

Rich Hall’s critically acclaimed new show begins its second leg of touring, and will stop off at the New Theatre Royal.

There has never been a better time to be an American comedian in the UK. Hall’s precision dismantling of the tenuous relationship between two countries is as freewheeling and deadly accurate as ever. His BBC Four documentaries, most recently Rich Hall’s Countrier Than You and Rich Hall’s Presidential Grudge Match, plus BBC Radio 4's Rich Hall’s (US Election) Breakdown have built him a new legion of followers, as have appearances on Have I Got News For You and QI. But if you’ve only ever seen Hall on TV, you’ve short-changed yourself.

“As close as it gets to a guaranteed good show” (Scotland on Sunday)

The Hoedown begins as a withering dissection of Trump’s America, but ends up being a celebration of Americana. There’s stand-up, improvised ballads, cracking good musicianship, and ultimately a hilarious, foot-stomping good time to be had by all. Even if you don’t own a hoe.
