“This (extremely) young stand-up is poised to become the next bright youngsensation on the comedy circuit – expect to hear a lot more of him” The Guardian

"His 2013 Debut solo show should be one for the diary" Three Weeks

"He’s brash, slick and full of mildly laddish but self-deprecating stories, all delivered with an irresistible twinkle. Richardson may be full of self-confidence but he’s got the broad appeal to back up the cockiness" The Guardian
