Rich Hall is an American comedian and writer. Part Cherokee, part cranky Southerner, part country singer. Rich is probably best known around these here parts for his recent appearences on Channel 4's "Stand Up For The Week" and as an outstanding guest on Q.I., Have I Got News For You, and Never mind The Buzzcocks.
Oh yeah, in 2000, he won the Perrier Comedy Award at the Edinburgh Fringe, in the guise of his own grizzled uncle, Otis Lee Crenshaw, the much-convicted country music singer. A grouchy deadpan comedy genius who looks like a Pearl Jam roadie, Rich is a master of absurdist irony. He’s widely believd to be the inspiration for Simpson’s character Moe Syzlak. Mr. Hall as nobody calls him, has sold out every show he ever played in Galway. Get those tickets early folks.
