Rich Hall

The story of one man and his fly, or rather one fly and his stand-up comedian. Rich Hall, the Montana miserablist best known for his splenetic ranting and copious appearances on UK TV panel shows was beset by an insect (possibly a fly) for the duration of his show. Despite applying his brand of cynicism to Kanye West's literary efforts, President Obama's hope and Snoop Dogg's charity work in his well-loved irascible, undermining way, he (understandably) lost control of what would normally be escalating streams of invective when besieged by the winged creature. (Incidentally, Insect Monthly gave the fly four stars and noted that it had set the world of insect entertainers abuzz.)

Assembly @ George Street, 623 3030, until 31 Aug, 10.30pm, £14-£16 (13-£15).

'Grouchy.' 'Splenetic.' 'Extemporaneous powerhouse.' None of these match the esteemed Adelaide Advertiser, who stated: 'Rich Hall has Wild West eyebrows.' That alone is worth the price of admission. Come see the eyebrows that tamed the American frontier.
