Fresh from the huge success of his 2014 tour show, Getting Lost in My Hometown, storytelling comedian Paul Richards is back with his most...awkward show to date: Inadequate Man.

The hour long-piece, which fuses theatre and comedy, will be Paul’s 12th Edinburgh Fringe production, and is coming to Louth.

Telling the gentle story of a 33-year-old man who is desperate to get on with people only to accidentally cause ‘misunderstandings’, a man who is desperate to create a whole new genre of ‘entertainment’, a man who has been described, quite a few times now, as being ‘a cross between Dave Gorman and Rigsby from Rising Damp.’

A one-man comedy play about shepherd’s pie, shocking third dates (the first and second are always great) and seeing the good in absolutely everything. Will definitely feature a small drum and some letters to his former house mate who still hasn’t given him back his deposit, not that he’s bitter or anything. May or may not contain the grand première of Ronnie Rosenthal: The Musical.

The show is on May 1 and May 2 at The Priory Hotel (149 Eastgate), at 8pm. Entry is ‘pay what you want’.
