Hello and a very warm welcome. My name is Richard Gill and I attend a lot of comedy shows – you may have heard my legendary laugh! In 2017, I turned fifty years old – my home town is Carlisle but I have lived and worked in London for the last twenty five years. This blog is based on my experiences of watching comedians perform live on stage and will include every act that I have seen from 2018 onwards.

I have always been a paying member of an audience.  I am not a performer or reviewer but I am passionate about comedy.  I have seen a very wide range of comedians over the years from variety acts of the seventies and the emergence of the new wave of comedians in the eighties to the great story tellers, pun masters and arena-filling comedians of the twenty first century.

I am in the process of writing my first book: ‘A Rich Comic Life’ which will feature over 600 comedians that I have seen live over the last four decades. It is intended that the book will be a major index of comedians along with any personal anecdotes, reminisces and stories whilst watching them perform live. It is hoped that the book will be an invaluable resource into the history of modern live comedy.

I hope the blog is also a useful and funny insight into the world of comedy and if you like it, please spread the word. You can read the blogs at any time in one of three ways: a) by clicking on the name of the comedian scrolling across the bottom of this page or b) by clicking on the Contents button in the Menu at the top of this page and then clicking the name of the comedian or c) by clicking on the Blogs button in the Menu at the top of this page to read all the blogs as they are written..

If you have any feedback then please leave a comment in the Blog section below my blog entry or alternatively, if you want to leave a testimonial (as many already have), please email me direct at richardwgill@googlemail.com and I will add your comment to the Testimonials page. Finally, If you want to follow me, please enter your email address at the bottom of this page and click on the Subscribe button.
