Richard Todd Comedy

Richard began stand-up comedy in 2011 and has won several awards, written and performed three acclaimed shows at

the Edinburgh Festival and club sets at Up The Creek,

Komedia, Latitude Festival, XS Malarky and in a

bath tub during a house party

(he is that versatile). 

He wrote Spatulahead: an animated

short commissioned by Channel 4

for their Random Acts program. The

film went on to be selected for show

at The TorontoAnimation Arts Festival,

The Melbourne Film Festival and the

London International Film Festival and

was nominated for best animation at the

RoyalTelevision Society Northeast

and Border.

He works part time with vulnerable adults facilitating art workshops, organising exhibitions and selling their work and was recognised in the Big Issue as one of their top 100 changemakers of 2019.

His short stories have been published in several small

press publications and his illustration work won him

best poster design at the 2017 Brighton Fringe.


A fan of symmetry in design he will write

anything, even the most mundane,

expositional confession, to make

a paragraph line up with

the one opposite.




'Expertly crafted… An act that is both fitting to call absurdist and unique.'
