'God's gift to comedy… astonishingly assured and uncompromisingly intelligent…fantastic, in every sense of the word' - The Observer
Richard Tyrone Jones is now a solo comedian, comic poet, raconteur, MC and event organiser for all seasons. Richard Tyrone Jones’ material ranges from the downright daft, to the witheringly self-deprecating, always cut through by a strong vein of sardonic humour, bold leaps of the imagination, a strident voice and some really cheesy gags.
“five star performance” - Ham & High.
Richard is organizer and host of regular night 'Utter!'....." with
its raucous mix of comedy, poetry and music, which takes place on the
second Tues of the month (usually), 7.30pm at the Green Note, 106
Camden Parkway (Tube: Camden Town. Overland: Camden Road, Euston).
Utter! should be at the Edinburgh Free Fringe in 2009.
Other performances have included:
Richard also performs as his alter-ego, 55-year-old alcoholic anarchist Punk Poet Ritchie Scurvey. Ex-bassist with earthmoving 70s punk band 'Dick Scurvey and the Cocksmiths', Ritchie lives on a floor in Hackney and spits like 'Maggie Thatcher, Maggie Thatcher, from what reptilian egg did they hatch her?' and, with the help of sidekick 'Socky the Drugs Puppet', alerts kids to the evils of heroin outside schools across London. Since winning the 'Poetry Idol' contest at London's premier weekly comedy, poetry, music and magic night 'Shortfuse' in November 2004 his career has taken him to perform at Express Excess, the Tottenham Festival, Mirth Control comedy and other stages he can't tell the DSS about.
Richard’s drag poetry Pam Ayres tribute act, Pam Swears, does exactly what it says on the tin.
