Fresh from playing the Donkey in Shrek on the West End stage, funnyman, actor and DJ Richard Blackwood heads to Birmingham to kick off the autumn season of comedy shows at The Drum. The Clapham-born star set his sights on being a comedian when he was just eight years old after watching comic Richard Pryor live in concert on TV. He toured the stand-up circuit for four years before getting a big break on MTV in 1997 at the age of 25. He subsequently carved himself out a career as an actor, TV presenter and radio DJ.
