Away from his live stand up, Jon is best known as team captain on Channel 4’s ‘8 Out Of 10 Cats’ and ‘8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown’.
His recent TV credits include ‘Have I Got News For You’ (BBC ONE), ‘Live At The Apollo’ (BBC ONE), ‘Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow’ (BBC ONE),‘Channel 4’s Comedy Gala Live At The 02’ and ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’ (BBC TWO).
Jon also appeared in his very own Channel 4 Documentary Jon Richardson: a Little Bit OCD in 2013, which subsequently won a Mind Media award, plus starred alongside fellow Cats captain Sean Lock, also in 2012, in the series Hillbilly Holiday (Channel 4).
Jon will also be starring in a brand new Channel 4 series this September, ‘Jon Richardson Grows Up.’ Mortgages, marriage and parenthood - all big words from the ‘Adult World’ that strike fear into the heart of 30-somethings everywhere. In the new three-part series Jon will embark on a journey that will not only enlighten him, but the whole of the UK, as to what it takes to be a ‘Happy Adult’. This is not just a do-gooders guide to ‘growing as a person’ - Jon and his best mate, fellow comedian and optimist Matt ‘Fordie’ Forde, are going on a good old fashioned road-trip around Britain. The pair will travel in a campervan meeting people from all walks of life who have unique views on what it means to be ”grown-up”.
He’ll be at the Millennium Forum on Sunday 19th October
