Based in Plymouth, Richard has been performing comedy since 2012. In 2014, he was a finalist in Foster's South Coast Comedian of the Year.
He has performed across the UK on pro-bills alongside the great and the good, from festivals to corporate functions, to theatres and little pubs. In Feb 2015 he majestically crossed the Atlantic and performed in the USA, in New York and Baltimore.
As well as performing, he co-runs a series of successful Open Mic comedy nights in Plymouth as part of The Plymouth Comedy Avengers; monthly nights where new acts gain stage time and experienced acts get to test out material.
Along with a fondness for the absurd and the awkward details of life, Richard is an unashamed nerd for history and science fiction. The material that he uses stretches from topical humour to bizarre family stories to films and history. His passion for writing comedy means that he is constantly coming up with new ideas, sketches and routines.
Always on the look-out for more gigs and new audiences, he is keen to sharpen his comedic skills.
