This show brings together some of the finest comedians off TV and the international comedy circuit.
Reginald D Hunter
Since his first UK comedy gig twenty-one years ago Reginald’s searingly honest observations both onstage and on TV have garnered him a cross-generational fan base, he has become one of the Comedy industry’s best-known performers for his distinctive take on the most diverse range of subjects. His work can be brutally honest and is often considered to be controversial but it is always meticulously thought out and he has never been afraid to face challenging issues head on even when the focus is on his own principles or beliefs.
His many TV appearances have included Have I Got News for You? QI, Live at the Apollo and two series of the BBC2’s hugely popular Reginald D Hunter’s Songs Of The South & Songs of The Border, documenting Reginald’s epic road trip through 150 years of American popular song.
