HE IS one of the UK’s leading and most respected comedians and he’s back on the road with a new tour.
Jeremy Hardy plays the Lawrence Batley Theatre on January 26. It should be a night to remember.
Jeremy, an essential member of Radio 4’s The Newsquiz team, has called his new show, His Live Work.
The tour PRs describe it in the low-key, tongue-in-cheek manner that you would expect.
“Hardy’s new live show could be called an extravaganza were it not for the fact that nothing happens.
“He comes on, talks for a while and then goes off again. He doesn’t walk about. In fact ‘show’ is a bit of an overstatement. But he does say quite a lot, most of it coherent. And he means well, which is the main thing. “Still alive and able to speak for lengthy periods, this will not be so much as a one-man show as an understaffed cavalcade.
“Jeremy’s perhaps best remembered as a younger man, but there is nothing he can do about that now.
“He became a stand-up comic in 1984 and will be one until he dies or wins the lottery.”
His live work has included Just For Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where he won the prestigious Perrier Award and numerous tours of the UK and Ireland.
Jeremy is much in demand as a performer and writer.
He is a regular on several Radio 4 shows and on TV and has made a number of films.
Two years ago, his book, My Family And Other Strangers (Ebury Publishing) was published. He has also written Jeremy Hardy Speaks To The Nation (Methuen) and When Did You Last See Your Father (Methuen). Jeremy has had a regular column in the Guardian and the Evening Standard Magazine.
