Description

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.

Richard is a likeable performer with an easy comedic style. His humour is on the dry side and he is often quick-witted. He is at this strongest when talking about his blindness and even finds comedy in a serious health situation from his past. I can understand his desire to engage with an audience that he cannot see but some of those interactions can fall a little flat. Having said that, this is only Richard's second time at Fringe so I'm sure that he is learning what works and what doesn't.
