Hardy's agents Off The Kerb are facilitating the gig. They say: "On February 1st this year, Jeremy passed away from cancer, leaving not just a hole in the world of comedy but, also, a strong legacy of championing human rights, peace and political awareness. To mark this legacy, friends and fellow comedians have decided to stage this event in his memory - and provide the kind of laughs Jeremy was so much loved and famed for."
As recently announced, a new book titled Jeremy Hardy Speaks Volumes is to be released in February 2020. Hardy's wife Katie Barlow has helped compile the 320 page book, with his long-term radio producer, David Tyler. It contains material from Hardy's stand-up routines and radio monologues as well as tributes from his friends and family.
Often referred to as 'the comedian's comedian', Jeremy's comedy could be both personal and political, ranging in topics from prison reform to parenting, from British identity to sex. His comedy could be biting, provocative and illuminating, but it could also be surreal, mischievous and, at times, very silly. Outspoken and a lifelong socialist, Jeremy's greatest skill was that, through his warmth and humanity, he always brought the audience along with him.
Jeremy Hardy Speaks Volumes is a fitting celebration to this brilliant comedian. Containing material from his stand-up to his radio monologues and political satire to the joyfully silly gems - and curated to encompass everything about Jeremy that fans adored - Jeremy Hardy Speaks Volumes is wise, daft, outrageous, satirical, personal and, above all, very funny: like Jeremy himself.
