News: Hal Cruttenden Announces New Tour

Hal Cruttenden

Hal Cruttenden has announced a new tour this autumn with his brand new show. After a month long run at the Pleasance Courtyard for the Edinburgh Festival, the Straight Outta Cruttenden UK tour starts on 11th September at Southend’s Palace Theatre and ends on 5th December at Canterbury’s Gulbenkian Theatre. This is the stand-up's first new show since the critically acclaimed Tough Luvvie that began life in 2012. That show finally finished in February this year, touring extensively with 170 dates, selling over 40,000 tickets.

In Straight Outta Cruttenden the comedian politely rants about the real evils of the modern world - over-sharing on social media and the 5:2 diet.  The hungrier he gets the funnier he becomes.  Hal also gives us his unique insights on being an orphan on Facebook, taking his wife to Saudi Arabia and how he fell out with George Osborne at school (or Gideon as he was then) and personally blames him every time he puts up the price of petrol.

Cruttenden is one of the top comedians working in the UK today, as well as being a highly accomplished writer and actor. He is due to appear on the new BBC1 series The John Bishop Show and has two shows in development – one with Tiger Aspect and a second with ITV.  Hal has also just recorded a pilot with Sue Perkins called Insert Name Here that also featured Richard Osman and Rachel Riley. He has had two Radio 4 series in the past year and a third is in the pipeline.
