Hull Truck Theatre, Hull UK City Of Culture 2017 and The Royal Shakespeare Company present
Fri 24 Feb - Sat 18 Mar
Jeremy Hardy is in his 4th decade as a stand-up this year. That’s a more dramatic way of saying he started 32 years ago and, without a lottery win, probably has at least another 32 years to go. In 2014, the tenth series of Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation was broadcast on Radio 4. He is also well known for his appearances on The News Quiz and I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue. Indeed, Alan Bennett recently said he likes him “but he’s only on the radio”.
However, Jeremy isn’t only on the radio, his television credits include: Jack Dee’s Election Helpdesk (BBC2), QI (BBC1), Mock The Week (BBC2), Grumpy Old Men (BBC1), Back In The Day (BBC2), Not Tonight With John Sergeant (BBC2).
He is also on the road all year round and has never stopped doing live shows since 1984. After briefly hibernating in the winter, he's back out on the road in 2016.
£5 tickets are available for patrons who are in receipt of JSA, employment or income support. Proof is required upon collection of tickets.
‘In an ideal world, Jeremy Hardy would be extremely famous, but an ideal world would leave him without most of his best material’
