Rich Hall's 2022 biography

Rich Hall’s background

The deadpan American comic Rich Hall quit his job as a hurricane namer for the United States Meteorological Service eighteen years ago, and hasn’t looked back. Spending most of his time in London, he likes to lay into his fellow countrymen and life across The Pond at every opportunity.

Rich Hall’s critically acclaimed grouchy, deadpan style has established him as a master of absurdist irony and the king of rapid-fire wit. The award-winning Montana native is renowned for his expertly crafted tirades and quick fire banter with audiences. This is a comedian who’s plain spoken growling indignation and acerbic observations have an unerring talent for hitting his targets with precision every time, leaving his audience hanging on every word winning him fans all over the globe. Hall has been described as a transatlantic messenger lampooning each country he visits with his common sense, and he is no less harsh to his homeland.

Rich is well known in the United States for appearing and writing on The David Letterman Show for which he won two Emmy Awards. He was a writer and cast member on Saturday Night Live for the 1984 – 1985 season and he appeared a few times on Late Night with Conan O’Brien between 1994 and 2004. He was also a regular on Not Necessarily the News from 1982 -1990 and his famous ‘sniglets’ segment was eventually compiled into two books.

He has also been a regular on the international comedy scene including regular appearances at the Edinburgh Festival, and every major comedy club in the UK. Selling out gigs and touring the world, Rich’s deadpan humour has won him a global fan base.

In another outpouring of patriotism Rich created the Perrier award-winning character Otis Lee Crenshaw. In essence, a redneck jailbird singer from Tennessee who has been married seven times, all to women named Brenda. Joined onstage by three musicians, Otis composes songs on the spot about the audience and the headlines of the day. Rich continues the show today, although without Otis, but with just as much wit and love of authentic country music.

His gigs at the London’s Comedy Store proved that Rich had broken through the ranks of jobbing comedians, to establish himself as one of the world’s funniest men.

Perfect for awards ceremonies and hosting, Rich’s comedic genius won’t fail to have any audience in stitches.
