Richard Stott - Toe The Line - After a critically acclaimed run of his debut hour Richard Stott is back to question the merits of fitting in. Having difference forced on him from birth Richard aims to explore comedically how being on the outside has affected him for good and for bad. A theatrical piece of comedic story telling with acidic punchlines, shining a light on what we turn away from.
Told from the lense of a psychiatrists couch this is not your average comedy show.

Richard Stott is an exciting new voice in stand-up. His work uses his disability as a jumping off point to in pieces that discuss wider social commentary. Coming to comedy late on his first show was written and performed in 2017 and won critical acclaim ("Unquestionably funny, I defy anybody not to be enthralled" - The Evening Standard). Since then his work continued with his debut hour show Right Hand Man which also won critical acclaim but excitingly was named by Dave TV as having the 2nd funniest joke of the Ed Fringe 2019.
Richard comes from a background of theatre and he moulds this seamlessly into his work with narrative, physical performance and terrific stage command. It gives his comedy shows an extra edge.
