Rich Hall - 2341

Apr 1st 2013 | Cora Kipling

American comedian Rich Hall has gained international recognition from his regular appearances on Saturday Night Live, David Letterman and QI. Visitors to his Melbourne Comedy Festival show at the Capitol Theatre are in for an hour of fun as he wryly tackles the big issues: politics, economics and even the 'hostile takeover of a chocolate company'.

His musical adlibs involving the audience are hilarious and impressive. After casually engaging audience members in conversation, he launches into spontaneous songs about their lives and problems that had the crowd's feet tapping and laughs flowing.

Rich has been performing at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for over 20 years. It would be fair to say that he doesn't just play lip-service to Australia, he understands a little about what makes it tick. His comments on Australian politics are insightful, and references to Tim Winton and Paul Kelly can't help but make people smile.
