A WELL-KNOWN American comedian has been announced to perform at the Queen's Hall in Hexham.

Rich Hall will perform his tour, Shot From Cannons, on Saturday, September 17.

Following the release of his critically acclaimed memoirs, Nailing It, Rich returns with new rants, knife-edge observations, thrilling musical interludes and an ever-formidable knack for laughs.

Hall has featured on shows including QI, Top Gear, Live at the Apollo and Have I Got News For You among others.

The tour has been described as 'vital and incredulously angry. Hilarious,' by The Scotsman and 'blissfully funny' by the Guardian.

The Mail On Sunday said: "One hour of stonking stand-up and another of stomping hoedown mayhem. That's two top gigs in one," with a rating of four stars.
