News: Jon Richardson Launches Unexpectedly Optimistic Podcast

Comedian Jon Richardson (Ultimate Worrier, Meet the Richardsons, 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown) has launched a new podcast – together with world renowned futurists Ed Gillespie and Mark Stevenson – which offers an antidote to the doom and gloom of the current global situation, and explores – with optimism and humour – the many ways in which we can all make the world a better place. 


TV: Meet The Richardsons, Dave

In interviews to promote this new series in which he stars as himself with his real-life wife Lucy Beuamont, comedian Jon Richardson has compared Meet The Richardsons to Seinfeld. “You see their lives and how it informs their stage act.” I’d beg to differ about the comparison. To me the series is closer to Curb Your Enthusiasm with, albeit, slightly less inappropriateness from the male star. Heck, Lucy Beaumont even looks a bit like Cheryl Hines, who plays Larry David’s ex-wife in the hit HBO show.

TV: Jon Richardson: Ultimate Worrier, Dave

With innovative programmes such as Taskmaster and Dave Gorman's Modern Life Is Goodish Dave – the channel not Mr Gorman – has shown that it can put its own idiosyncratic spin on the game show and the stand-up show. With Jon Richardson's new vehicle they prove that they can also do conventional panel shows pretty well too.
