Jeremy Hardy

Jeremy Hardy TRAIN WINDOWJeremy Hardy returns to Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts, on 10 May. One of the UK’s foremost comedians, he is enjoying his fourth decade as a stand-up, which is a slightly more dramatic way of saying he started performing 32 years ago and, without a Lottery win, probably has at least another 32 years to go.

Jeremy’s radio career includes ten series of Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation on BBC Radio 4. He is also well known for his appearances on The News Quiz and I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue. Indeed, Alan Bennett recently said he likes him “but he’s only on the radio”.

However, Jeremy isn’t only on the radio. He is on the road all year round and has never stopped doing live shows since 1984.

“The great thing about doing a live show is that it keeps evolving,” says Jeremy. “I keep changing and developing it. It won’t be the same at the end of the tour as it was at the beginning. Stand-up is not like other art-forms. When you’ve done a painting and sold it to someone, you can’t keep going round to their house and adding bits. That would be a bit strange. It would also be burglary, not to say criminal damage.”
