Rich Hall

Presented by Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Brisbane Comedy Festival

Everyone’s favourite sardonic straight shooter Rich Hall makes his long-awaited return to Brisbane. After a sell-out Australian tour in 2016, the cranky Yank is back, bringing more of his trademark wit and caustic conversation.

Alongside top gongs at both Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Edinburgh Fringe, Rich Hall has collected a legion of fans around the world. An expert stand-up, musician and improviser, Rich Hall is a master of irony and the absurd. Do not miss this true festival legend doing what he does best – nimbly delivering line after line of on-point political observations and comic banter.
