REGARDED as one of the sharpest comedians on the circuit, Jeremy Hardy is performing at The Radlett Centre next Friday, October 2.
The alternative stand-up comedian has been around for many years having made his television debut in various comedy shows in the late 1980s.
Radio Four audiences know him from I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue and The News Quiz but his politics do not always go down well with his audiences - he is a socialist who has been accused of being an IRA supporter.
But his softer side came out when his close friend and fellow comedian Linda Smith died and he not only eulogised her in many publications but also wrote the Guardian obituary.
