Press clippings

Australian comedian Adam Hills has scored his own series off the back of a triumphant turn in the summer presenting The Last Leg - Channel 4's nightly comedy show screened as part of their Paralympics coverage. If you missed him then, here's your chance to catch Hill's happy, ironic brand of humour as he steps up to the mic for a one-off stand-up show recorded live in the West End.

Metro, 20th December 2012

Six months ago, few in the UK had heard of Adam Hills. Probably about the same number of people as were familiar with David Weir and Sarah Storey, in fact. But just as the Paralympics made stars of many British athletes, so it elevated one Australian comedian into the limelight where, following a bidding war from which C4 emerged victorious (he's even delivering the channel's Alternative Christmas Message at 4.20pm on Christmas Day), he looks likely to thrive. After The Last Leg, his acclaimed series during the Paralympics that revived the dread concept of a 'sideways look' at current events (and has one last hurrah at 11.05pm on December 30), Hills recorded this one-off gig at the Lyric in Hammersmith. An established star in his homeland, and not as prone to mine his disability for laughs as you might fear (Hills only has one leg), he's an accomplished comic whose laid-back style disguises a barbed, subversive wit. This should be a treat.

Australian comic Adam Hills proved a hit during the 2012 Paralympics as host of Channel 4's nightly irreverent show The Last Leg - often using the fact that he was born without a right foot as a source of comedy. Here's a chance to watch him in a warm and witty stand-up set recorded live at London's Lyric Theatre. Hills blends hilarious anecdotes with laid-back delivery, spontaneous ad libs and audience participation.
