Uns-Pun by Richard Pulsford
Upstairs @ The Western, Friday, 22 June 2018
“pithy puns and topical one liners.”
If, like me, you have the attention span of a goldfish and are a fan of playground humour then Richard Pulsford is a name to watch out for.
Richard has been gigging since 2004 and is often compared with Tm Vine, Milton Jones, Gary Delaney or Stewart Francis. He has been an invited performer at Leicester Comedy Festival’s annual Pun Competition and competed favourably for the last 4 years.
In preparation for this year’s Edinburgh Festival in August he is part of Upstairs at The Western’s series of Preview gigs.
Tonight his material ranged from pithy puns to topical one liners. Being a preview show the material was a little patchy, but that is what it is for, to sort the wheat from the chaff. The intimate audience appreciated the show and groaned and laughed in all the right places. Full details of up and coming shows can be found at www.richardpulsford.com
