Right Hand Man This archived event took place on 09/12/2020 at 7PM. In this 'Heart-wrenchingly moving and unquestionably funny” (Evening Standard) stand-up show Richard Stott examines body image, mental health and being disabled in an image-obsessed world. Stott was born with Poland Syndrome making him lopsided with a misshapen hand. He had life-changing surgery to add toes for fingers on his left hand, which growing up, gave him a unique and unflinchingly funny outlook on the world. This fast paced romp through the taboos of being different combines anarchic storytelling and acidic punchlines about learning how to roll with the hand life dealt you. The show is supported by Arts Council England and received with critical acclaim at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival. “Stott has put together a thoroughly enjoyable hour about coping with disability, trying to achieve your dreams, coming to terms with personal shortcomings and the importance of communicating with one another. Better still, he’s managed to make it stand out amongst myriad weaker shows trying to achieve the same”.
