An artist draws the same image repeatedly with indomitable zeal. A convenience shopkeeper eschews convenience to pursue his entrepreneurial dreams. Chortle's One to Watch 2018, Richard Todd, returns to Edinburgh with a new show. Fools? Maybe! Obsessed? Certainly! Pension plans? Probably not. Let's meet them! In celebration of the human spirit, Richard Todd prods hope's perpetually moribund body with the indubitable stick of logic and asks 'why won't it die?'. 'Painfully funny' **** (Scotsman).

Richard Todd interview

Richard Todd is getting to grips with toilets and electric hobs. Oh, and tightrope walking over his performance abyss...

Mister Kipper, FringePig, 27th August 2018

This festivsl might appear finished but it is not

Edinburgh. Erratic weather conditions. Sun. Rain. Heavier rain. Sun. Icy chill. Hot streak. A tough 5 minutes.

My people: pensive chucklers with one eye on bedtime

As a child I would often get scolded by my uncle for being irresponsible (though I still refuse to believe that the suction power of the vacuum cleaner I was using to levitate my sister's hair was enough rip her head off).

Salty effluvia has sluiced down my legs

The biggest problem now is my shoes.

British Comedy Guide, 17th August 2018

The monkey is still missing his arm

I have an innately self destructive, monomaniacal disposition, and when nothing of purpose is occupying me, I have a tendency to obsess over myself.
