Richard is Britain’s leading blind theoretical physicist turned stand-up comedian with a Blue Peter badge… well, definitely in the top three. Richard began his gap year after his theoretical physics degree in 2016. Two years, 10 countries, and eight months of stand-up later and he’s made it to the Fringe! A lifelong fan of BBC comedy, Richard prefers a charming wit over explicit content, often self-effacing and always smiling.
