DUE to overwhelming public demand, the brilliant Jon Richardson is back on tour this year.

And on Thursday, March 22nd the new host of Channel 4’s “Stand Up For The Week”, team captain on “8 Out Of 10 Cats”, Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and best-selling author will be bringing his new show to the Burnley Mechanics.

Discussing the everyday items that have a profound effect on his outlook, “Funny Magnet” sees Jon working his pessimism with some hilarious consequences, and as always with his loveable vivacious delivery.

Away from stand-up Jon is massively in demand for television and radio appearances at the moment.

His recent TV credits include; “Have I Got News For You” (BBC1), “Live At The Apollo” (BBC1), “Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow” (BBC1), Channel 4’s “Comedy Gala Live At The 02” and “Never Mind The Buzzcocks” (BBC2).
