With four decades of stand-up experience to his name, comedy veteran Jeremy Hardy is heading to the North East this month for his highly-anticipated performance at the illustrious Gala Theatre in Durham.
Best known for his extensive work in radio, Hardy has for many years established himself as one of the UK’s most respected comedic broadcasters. Hardy is most often recognised for his work on BBC Radio 4’s ‘The News Quiz, I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue’ and his long-running series of monologues, ‘Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation’.
In addition to Hardy’s success on the radio, he has several television credits to his name, most notably for ‘Blackadder Goes Forth’, ‘Jack and Jeremy’s Real Lives with Jack Dee’, and ‘Now Something Else with Rory Bremner’.
Hardy has written a number of columns for The Guardian and Red Pepper as well as penning three books: ‘When Did You Last See Your Father’, a spoof childcare guide; ‘Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation’, based on the radio series; and ‘My Family and Other Strangers’, an examination of his lacklustre ancestry, published last year.
After emerging on the comedy scene in January of 1984 following his graduation from the University of Southampton, Hardy went on to receive the prestigious Perrier Comedy Award after an eye-catching set at the 1988 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
His performance at the Gala Theatre in Durham is sure to be a night of hilarity for all.
