Award-winning comedian and television personality Jon Richardson will be taking to the stage at Cheltenham Racecourse later this year.

Richardson, who is best known for his appearances on shows like 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Taskmaster and Have I Got News For You, will be bringing his brand new stand-up show ‘The Knitwit’ to The Centaur on Saturday 17th October.

A regular on the stand-up circuit, Jon’s first gig was in 2003 where he won his heat of the BBC New Comedy Talent Search.

After completing a sixty-date UK tour with Alan Carr in 2006, Jon won Best Breakthrough Act at the 2007 Chortle Awards and went on to receive a Best Newcomer nomination for his show, ‘Spatula Pad’, at the 2007 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

This was followed in 2008 with a successful Edinburgh run of his second solo show, ‘Dogmatic’, and a subsequent Edinburgh Comedy Award best show nomination in 2009 for his third Edinburgh show, ‘This Guy at Night’.

Lee Moulson, Regional Head of Sales at Cheltenham Racecourse, Jockey Club Racecourses, said: “Cheltenham Racecourse is well-known for bringing some of the best comedians to the area and Jon is no exception.

“He will come after a great run of top names over the past few years such as Jack Whitehall, Rob Beckett and Joel Dommett.

“Anyone who has seen Jon, whether doing stand-up or on television will know how funny he is and we are thrilled that he is coming along to Cheltenham Racecourse later this year.

“Jon’s show is just one of many exciting events that are taking place at the venue this year. We have plenty more shows and music events to cater for all tastes coming up such as the return of the Cheltenham Masters Darts Tournament, Jason Donovan’s Even More Good Reasons Tour and the Wychwood Festival to name but a few.”

Tickets go on sale on Friday 14th February at 10am, and for more information visit
