Jon Richardson

Top TV comic Jon Richardson’s intimate gig at Middlesbrough Town Hall Crypt on Sunday 15 April sold out so quickly that promoters Ten Feet Tall have had to move the show upstairs into the Main Hall just to meet the demand.

And tickets are still selling fast for what looks set to be a top Boro night for Jon’s brand new show Funny Magnet – just before he heads off for a six-night stint at London’s Leicester Square Theatre.

The team captain on 8 Out of 10 Cats and host of Channel 4’s Stand Up For The Week is already a big TV hit thanks to a clutch of shows including Have I Got News For You, Live at the Apollo, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Channel 4’s Comedy Gala Live at the 02, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and loads more besides.

Peter Vincent of promoters Ten Feet Tall said: “Comedy bigwigs reckon that Jon is right on the verge of greatness, and we think that’s spot on! We thought we’d just do a nice intimate Crypt gig, but we’ve had to move the show upstairs into the Main Hall just to meet the huge public demand.

“He’s always been one of our absolute favourite comics. Even when he was playing for us at Catch 22 at ARC you could just tell he stood out a mile – so we’re really chuffed to see how he’s now becoming one of the most popular comics around.”
