Yuriko Kotani

Winner of the BBC New Comedy Award and Time Out’s One to Watch, UK-based Japanese comedian Yuriko Kotani is going to tell stories of her experiences and thoughts as a work in progress in her “second language”.

As seen on Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, Pls Like (BBC3), Paul Hollywood Eats Japan (Channel 4) and Mandy series 2 (BBC2).

Her debut show “Somosomo” was Guardian’s recommended show, 2Northdown’s Top Ten Picks at Edinburgh Fringe and received those reviews:

“A brilliantly performed, well-structured & wonderfully unique set.” ★★★★★ fringebiscuit

“A must-see full of heart, passion and laughs.” ★★★★  Broadway Baby

“A superb show that leaves the audience feeling inspired and hopeful” ★★★★ Wee Review

“…genuinely hilarious and I will never look at the term ‘ish’ in quite the same way again.” ★★★★ Clownster

Rich Hardisty: Silly Boy WIP

In his intimate debut hour “SILLY BOY” Rich Hardisty takes us on a journey through the highs and the lows of his unusual life.

Expect anecdotes and observations about mental institutions, missing dads and mania, all from his warm/inquisitive/childlike perspective.

In the show Rich tries his best to convey what mental illness really looks and feels like.

But you won’t find any self pity or loathing here… this is a celebration of the beauty and silliness of it all and the interesting, hilarious and sometimes shocking things his brain is capable of doing (whether he wants it to or not.)

Raw, open and honest but most importantly…FUNNY!


RICH is a writer / performer who has performed in shows for C4, BBC and Netflix, has developed 2 sitcoms with channel 4, and developed projects with production companies:- Baby Cow , Spelthorne and V.A.L.

He has played Latitude and Wilderness festivals and used to host a show on Fubar radio.”
