From serving pints to serving top-rated laughs

Rich Wilson fell in love with comedy as a child when his neighbour gave him an Eddie Murphy cassette.

But his performing aspirations lay dormant until he ended up years later working behind the bar at a London comedy club and one night decided to give it a go himself. Inspired by the comedians he saw, he turned his hand to performing in 2004, and has since become a circuit regular, especially as a compere.

Rich’s comedy has won high praise with Frank Skinner describing him as ‘a very, very funny man’.

On Sunday, September 13, Rich pays a visit to Hebden Bridge Comedy Club along with Chris Washington, Time Out Comedy award-winner and Perth Comedy Fringe nominee Gordon Southern and MC Alex Boardman.

The show at the Old Gate pub starts at 8pm (doors open 7.45pm) and admission (for over-18s only) is £8.50. Tel: 07874 152338 for more information.
