Jon Richardson ‘It’s Not Me, It’s You’
Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee, regular Have I Got News For You panellist, star of Live At The Apollo and new team member on the second series of Channel 4’s Stand Up For The Week, Jon Richardson will be taking his new show It’s Not Me, It’s You across the UK in 2011.
With a sell out run at the Edinburgh Fringe behind him, It’s Not Me It’s You sees everyone’s favourite young grumpy man return to the stage. Embracing his misanthropy, the show features the best bits from his critically acclaimed Edinburgh show ‘Don’t Happy Be Worry’ as well as brand new material.
Discussing the everyday items that have a profound effect on his outlook, Richardson takes his audience on an eclectic journey from cheating footballers to decapitated alligators. It’s Not Me It’s You sees Jon working his pessimism with some hilarious consequences, and as always with his loveable vivacious delivery. It’s also the name of Jon’s highly anticipated first self penned book which is set for release in May 2011.
