Richard Stott: Right Hand Man
  • West End

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". The Skinny

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
