Richard Stott – Right Hand Man [Cancelled]

Please note this is an 18+ event

Right Hand Man is an hour long stand up show that tackles themes of disability and mental health. It is a fast paced, anarchic romp through life stories and social commentary. It was supported by Arts Council England and received with critical acclaim at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival.

A debut show from a comedian who was born with Poland Syndrome making him lopsided with a misshapen hand. Following life-changing surgery, he has toes for fingers on his left hand and in this unflinchingly honest show, he examines body image, mental health and being disabled in an image-obsessed world. An hour of anarchic storytelling and acidic punchlines exploring how he has learnt to roll with the hand life dealt him and draw humour from what we are told is humourless. ‘Heart-wrenchingly moving and unquestionably funny… I defy anyone not to be enthralled’ (Evening Standard).

His mission is to show people that there is honest humour in everything.

Performed at: Edinburgh Fringe (2019), Roar Festival (2019), Great Yorkshire Fringe (2019), Bedfringe (2019), Guildford Fringe (2019), Shaftesbury Fringe (2019), Battersea Arts Centre (2019), Hull Truck Theatre (2019), Hope Mill Theatre (2019)
