Radio 4 favourite Jeremy Hardy is back on the road this autumn stopping at the Corn Exchange in Newbury in October.
Jeremy is in his fourth decade as a stand-up performer this year. Which is a much more dramatic way of saying he started 33 years ago and, without a lottery win, probably has at least another 33 years to go.
In 2014, the 10th series of Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation was broadcast on Radio 4. He is also well known for his appearances on The News Quiz and I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue.
Alan Bennett, playwright, recently said he likes him ‘but he’s only on the radio’.
However, Jeremy isn’t just on the radio – his television credits include: Jack Dee’s Election Helpdesk (BBC2), QI (BBC1), Mock The Week (BBC2), Grumpy Old Men (BBC1), Back In The Day (BBC2), and Not Tonight With John Sergeant (BBC2).
He is also on the road all year round and has never stopped doing live shows since 1984.
Hardy made his television debut in the late 1980s in various comedy shows including Blackadder Goes Forth (1989), and has presented a television documentary about the political background to the English Civil War as well as an edition of Top of the Pops in 1996.
Hardy also wrote a regular column for The Guardian until 2001.
His erstwhile newspaper colleagues have said of him: “In an ideal world, Jeremy Hardy would be extremely famous, but an ideal world would leave him without most of his best material”.
Jeremy will be performing at 7.45pm on October 21 at The Corn Exchange. Full price tickets cost £15.
