On July 17th, comedian Paul Richards brings two of his shows to HEART.
As a performer, Paul has taken fourteen shows to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. At the fringe in 2016 Paul performed a remarkable 69 times, with his own shows and various guest spots including a triumphant stint in the live version of children’s TV show, Get Your Own Back, reading for the award-winning Iraq Out Loud and several appearances on the hugely popular Comedy Tapas showcase.
Will: The Bad Boy of Trad Jazz Funk Fusion
When Will, a struggling jazz drummer, accidentally eats Timmy Mallet’s rider backstage at a charity event, a simple apology surely would have done? Unfortunately for our awkward hero, this was only the start. As events and misunderstandings follow one after the other, his newfound fame as being the ‘bad boy of trad-jazz funk fusion’ earns him a lot of cash…but at what cost to his personal life?
A fast, quirky play that raises that all important question: would you chose success, money and fame over a potential relationship with the library assistant you’ve fancied for years?
The Complete History of Pop Music in an Hour
A simple fast-paced musical comedy show. The mission is simple: to tell the complete history of pop music within 60 minutes. A fun hour for all the family packed with big tunes, the odd singalong and an uncomfortable amount of terrible puns.
