I like it when the Gloucester Guildhall is packed to the rafters and there was not a spare seat available last evening for the visit of American stand-up comic Rich Hall. The three oldest Coles attended and guffawed merrily throughout. The first half saw the acerbic fellow provide many memorable observations about the recent US election as well as his usual offerings highlighting the fascinating differences between the British and American personalities. After the break, Hall played his popular red-neck country singer character, Otis Lee Crenshaw, and raised more exuberant chortles from the assembled throng. A visit to the London Road Supper Bar on the way home ended the evening nicely.
