Join Gareth Richards, Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominee, for his brand new show Never been to Disneyland. Gareth's parents couldn't afford to take the whole family to Disneyland, so they went without him. Gareth has never recovered, always feeling that he has been shut outside of life's theme park. He's an introvert stuck in an extrovert's world.
Former co-host on the Sony-Award winning Frank Skinner Absolute Radio Show, Gareth completed a run of his award nominated show Stand Up Between Songs at the Soho Theatre (2011), was placed in the top 10 of Dave's Funniest Jokes of the Fringe (2010), was nominated for the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year Award (2008) and later won a place as part of the Comedy Reserve, the Edinburgh Festival showcase run by The Pleasance. He has supported Rhod Gilbert on tour and recently performed in Frank Skinner and Friends at the Noël Coward Theatre in London's West End. Gareth has also appeared on Russell Howard's Good News (BBC Three).
