About Richard Rycroft
I’m Richard Rycroft, a nice middle aged chap who works as an actor (you’ve possibly seen me on the telly but forgotten what in) and stand-up comedian. 2010 was a year of competitions for me. Made it to the semi-final of the Leicester Square New Comedian of The Year competition and the finals of new act competitions promoted by the Hackney Empire, Laughing Horse Comedy Clubs (Judges’ Special Commendation) and the Reading Comedy Festival (Runner-Up).
Generally doing 10-15 minute sets, opening 20’s at the smaller clubs around the country, and my first solo show, THE SONGS I’LL NEVER SING, runs for an hour. Always on the look-out for nice places to perform. Distance no object, but I’m not made of petrol money (hint). There’s a short clip, if you’d like to see it, at http://richardrycroft.net/videos-and-stuff-2
As befits my age, I’m scared of technology and have no idea what possessed me to set up a blogsite thing, so expect sporadic posts full of laughable errors. But it’s nice to be here, and I hope you’ll join me on my adventures in acting & stand-up, making comments and generally letting me know you’re there. My gigs list page is regularly updated, so perhaps you’ll come and say hello in person one evening, too?
