After an exciting year of nationwide festival debuts, Richard Wheatley returns to where it all began one year ago. Funny, fast and friendly, Richard mixes anecdotes from his unique life with off-the-cuff audience interactions for high energy hilarity. Mostly clean, always funny, Richard prefers quick and clever wordplay over simple vulgarity. An hour with Britain’s funniest friendliest blind theoretical physicist turned award-winning radio newsreader and stand-up comedian is never dull, especially when he promises to keep the maths jokes to a minimum.
