An American comedian, songwriter and TV star is set to appear in Worcestershire for another headline show. 

Rich Hall has been booked for a return to Evesham as part of his 'Hoedown Deluxe' tour. 

The award-winning performer will step at The Henrician Theatre, formerly the Evesham Arts Centre, on Saturday June 11. 

Hailed as "acerbic stand-up combined with spit and sawdust alt-country lyricism", Hall's show combines a unique blend of comedy and music for an all-encompassing night of entertainment. 

Tickets are already on sale and can be purchased at the price of £17 from the Evesham Live website.

Born in Virginia, Rich Hall became popular in the United Kingdom through regular appearing on TV’s QI, Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and 8 Out Of 10 Cats.

He also appeared on the BBC Two programme Top Gear, where he entertained former host Jeremy Clarkson and the audience by writing a song about a Rover 25 car.

The 67-year-old won the Perrier Comedy Award in 2000 in the character of Tennessean country musician and redneck jailbird Otis Lee Crenshaw.

As well as comedy shows, he also writes and presents documentaries on the USA for BBC4.

Rich’s first professional work was as a writer and performer on the original David Letterman Show (1980), and the sketch comedy TV series Fridays from 1980 until 1982.

Since finding success in the UK, Hall has gone on to create and star in several series for the BBC, including comedies with Mike Wilmot, and documentaries often concerning cinema of the United States.
