Jeremy Hardy Q&A


Jeremy Hardy

Famous Last Words Q&A

Following a sellout tour earlier this year, Jeremy Hardy hits the road this Autumn with his new show, which is guaranteed to cheer you up in these difficult times.

Jeremy is enjoying his fourth decade as a stand-up comedian. That’s a more dramatic way of saying he started nearly 34 years ago and, without a lottery win, probably has at least another 34 years to go. In this new show Jeremy will be looking at death, fear and what it’s like to be a stand-up comedian.

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.

Here are his ‘Famous Last Words’…

Last thing you did that made you feel good?
A gig.

Last thing you’d want to be doing right now?
Running a marathon. What’s the point? It’s miles and there’s public transport.

Last night on Earth… What’s your poison?
Morphine. Seems to be what they use in palliative care.
