Preview – Richard Stott: Right Hand Man

Richard was born lopsided with a birth defect called Poland Syndrome, which caused his left hand and chest to be underdeveloped. He’s done what Jeremy Beadle didn’t, a whole show about having one small hand.

His comedy brings his story of “Being kind of disabled” under the microscope as his examines the effect it has on him mentally, aesthetically and professionally.

Right Hand Man is a new show by Richard, which aims to draw out the humour in disability and mental health as well as tackle the issues facing everyone in a world focused on image. A hard hitting yet feel good theatrical comedy from Britain’s Top Poland Syndrome Performer

“Unexpectedly inspiring and unquestionably funny” – The Evening Standard
