2013 British Comedy Award Best Male Comic nominee Jon is checking his tyre pressures, hoovering his floor mats and putting an emergency packed lunch in the boot of his car, ready to hit the road again with a brand new tour ‘Nidiot’. The tour includes two nights at the Hammersmith Apollo on 3rd and 4th October where he will record his second live stand-up DVD set for release in November 2014 from Amazon.
The perennial singleton and misanthrope is determined to become a more easygoing person for the sake of his friends and his future health. Come and find out whether or not a leopard can change its spots, or if they are doomed to be angry forever not to have been given a more uniform and symmetrical fur pattern.
Away from his live stand up, Jon is best known as team captain on Channel 4’s ‘8 Out Of 10 Cats’ and ‘8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown’. His recent TV credits include ‘Have I Got News For You’ (BBC ONE), ‘Live At The Apollo’ (BBC ONE), ‘Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow’ (BBC ONE),‘Channel 4’s Comedy Gala Live At The 02’ and ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’(BBC TWO).
As well as Stand Up For The Week and 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Jon also appeared in his very own Channel 4 Documentary Jon Richardson: a Little Bit ODC last year, which subsequently won a Mind Media award, plus starred alongside fellow Cats captain Sean Lock, also in 2012, in the series Hillbilly Holiday (Channel 4).
Jon released his debut DVD ‘Funny Magnet’ in 2012. Recorded at the Shaftesbury Apollo, the DVD was released by Universal Pictures (UK) on 19th November and is available now at www.amazon.com.
