First breaking through in the mid-2000s Jon Richardson is one of the UK’s most popular comedians and has completed numerous sold-out tours, as well as appearing on and hosting some of the country’s most-watched comedy television shows.

His forthcoming new tour follows his 2018 show, The Old Man, which was met with rave reviews.

Many will know Richardson as a team captain on the hit Channel 4 series 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, as host of Dave’s Ultimate Worrier, and for his appearances on shows such as Would I Lie To You, Have I Got News For You and Taskmaster. 

2020 will see the comedian debut a new TV show for Dave called Meet The Richardsons, which promises to follow the exploits of Jon and his comedian wife Lucy Beaumont.
