Comedian Jeremy Hardy begins his fourth decade as a stand-up this year - perhaps a more dramatic way of saying he started 31 years ago.

Well known for his appearances on The News Quiz and I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue, Jeremy may be a radio man but he is also on the road all year round and has never stopped doing live shows since 1984.

After briefly hibernating in the winter, he’s back out on the road in 2015 and will be at the Harpur Suite, Bedford on Thursday, April 16, in a show brought to town by Off The Kerb.

Jeremy has also done various bits of television, most notably, Now

Something Else with Rory Bremner, Saturday Live, Blackadder Goes

Forth, Loose Talk, Jack and Jeremy’s Real Lives with Jack Dee and If I

Ruled the World with Graeme Garden and Clive Anderson.

He’s also been in three films - Mike Figgis’s Hotel with Burt

Reynolds, Oliver Irving’s How to Be with Robert Pattinson and Leila

Sansour’s documentary, Jeremy Hardy v the Israeli Army, which involved

a degree of personal risk.

He has written columns for The Guardian and Red Pepper and has written

three books: When Did You Last See Your Father, a spoof childcare

guide; Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation, based on the radio series;

and My Family and Other Strangers, an examination of his lacklustre

ancestry, published last year.

He is also part of the live touring version of I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue.”
