A Double Bill of Edinburgh-Bound Comedy

Picture House,
New Road,
Hebden Bridge
8.30pm to 10.30pm
£12 (£10)

At just 25, Jon Richardson has been heralded as the best comic of his generation. Winner of the 2008 Chortle Breakthrough Act award, and host of BBC 6 Music’s The Jon Richardson Show, he brings his new show, The Guy at Night to Hebden Bridge.

‘Stunning ... If you haven't seen him yet get your finger out and sort it’ (Time Out)

In this Festival one-off, Jon is joined by Shappi Khorsandi, star of BBC ’s Live at the Apollo and Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow. Feisty, flirty and effortlessly funny, her new show The Distracted Activist is delivered with a razor-sharp wit, softened only by her dizzy delivery and endless charm.

‘Don't be fooled by her innocent looks, she packs a deceptively powerful punch’ (Evening Standard)
