Hall strikes it Rich with love action
IT seems that love has been in the air at the Fringe – or at least at one particular Fringe show.
Rich Hall’s Hoedown, featuring the laconic observations of the United States’ greatest stand-up, has gone down so well with audiences that it has led to not one, not two but three proposals to long-term partners in the audience. No word on how many of the lucky girls accepted the offer, though surely the risk of being heckled by Hall would be enough to see them say yes.
