Richard Lindesay has been described as like an Antipodean Milton Jones / Demetri Martin hybrid, with a sharp mix of quirky yet accessible jokes and short stories. And he also has a flute.
Richard has performed professionally throughout Australia, Europe, and the UK. He is currently based in South West UK, and available to perform nationwide.
