Rich Hall’s critically acclaimed new show begins its second leg of touring. There has never been a better time to be an American comedian in the UK. Hall’s precision in dismantling 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 and BBC Radio 4 series 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. If you only know Rich Hall from his radio and television programmes, you’ve short-changed yourself.
 
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.

As part of the 2017 Wantage (not just) Betjeman Literary Festival, Rich Hall will also be signing copies of his book (available to purchase on the night).
