Stand-up comedian Jon Richardson will be in Buxton

Posted: 11 February 2020

Stand-up comedian, and TV star Jon Richardson, has made his perfectionism and worrying into comedy gold. Jon won Best Newcomer Award back in 2007 at the Edinburgh Festival and since then he has gone from strength to strength.

In his new tour Jon Richardson: The Knitwit Jon will be worrying about the big questions. Will the recycling be put out on the right day?  Who is going to smooth over the top of the margarine?  How many lights are on upstairs when everybody is downstairs? 

Watch Jon pretend that these aren't his foremost concerns as he leaves home on his first tour since the last one.

Best known as a team captain on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), host of Dave’s Ultimate Worrier, and upcoming sitcom Meet the Richardsons. As well as Would I Lie To You (BBC One), Have I Got News For You (BBC One), Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC One), and Taskmaster (Dave).

Jon Richardson: The Knitwit is at Buxton Opera House on Thursday 17 September at 8pm. Tickets are priced at £23. Discounts are not available. To buy tickets contact Buxton Opera House Box Office, Tel: 01298 72190 or visit:
