Richard has a great love of storytelling and classic radio – the “theatre of the mind”!
Throughout 2022 Richard will continue touring with the first ever stage version of beloved BBC Radio comedy series The Navy Lark! In October he’ll return to Stourbridge Town Hall for a second intimate reading of a classic horror tale this autumn, following a successful debut for NeuNoir Theatre in 2021.
Elsewhere on stage, Richard has stepped into the shoes of his hero Peter Sellers for two tours of The Goon Show (FRED Theatre and Birmingham Comedy Festival) and the 2017 world premiere of Larry Stephens’ Vacant Lot, a long-lost sitcom created for Tony Hancock. The Lost Hancocks returned to the stage in September 2018 with a prestigious London premiere of the show at The British Library that saw Richard performing alongside Janice Connolly (Coronation Street, Phoenix Nights), Linda Hargreaves (Call The Midwife) and James Hurn (Doctors, Band of Brothers).
And on film, in 2016 he appeared as assassin’s handler Charlie in the award-winning short film Dead Meet.
