Jeremy Hardy will appear The Gardyne Theatre on October 28.

Although his youthful good looks may make it hard to believe, Jeremy Hardy celebrates 30 years as a stand-up this year.

What better way to celebrate than with a tour of some of the finest UK venues?

From Stratford to Stockton, Durham to Dundee where he will appear at The Gardyne Theatre on October 28, the politely-caustic comic will engage audiences with his views on anything from death, class, gender and civil disobedience, to Michael Gove, children’s television, the American Civil War, capitalism and dogs.

Since 1984, Hardy has become a familiar face on the stand-up scene with accolades including Perrier Award Winner 1988 and Best Live Comedian at the ITV Comedy Awards in 1991.

He is probably best known for his work on Radio 4, including ‘The News Quiz’, ‘Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation’ and ‘I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue’.

Hardy has also had regular columns in The Guardian and The Evening Standard Magazine and his acting credits include Mike Figgis’s film ‘Hotel’ with Burt Reynolds and ‘Blackadder Goes Forth’.
