‘Well good evening, my name is Jeremy Hardy and I’m a comedian who likes to make wry witty satirical observations about the society we live in — but I prefer to keep them to myself, thank you very much.’Jeremy Hardy, who died in February 2019, was perhaps the most distinctive and brilliant comedian to arise from the 80s Alternative Comedy circuit. He regularly entertained the millions who heard his outrageous rants on The News Quiz, his legendary singing on Sorry I Haven’t a Clue, or his hilarious monologues and sketches on the award-winning Jeremy Hardy Speaks to The Nation and Jeremy Hardy Feels It. Often referred to as ‘the comedian’s comedian’, Jeremy’s comedy could be both personal and political, ranging in topics from prison reform to parenting, from British identity to sex. His comedy could be biting, provocative and illuminating, but it could also be surreal, mischievous and, at times, very silly. And while Jeremy’s unwavering socialism was a thread that ran throughout his comedy, his greatest skill was that, whatever their political beliefs, Jeremy always brought his audience along with him. Jeremy Hardy Speaks Volumes is a fitting celebration of this brilliant comedian. With an introduction from Jack Dee and containing material from his stand-up to his radio monologues and political satire to the joyfully silly gems – and curated to encompass everything about Jeremy that fans adored — Jeremy Hardy Speaks Volumes is wise, daft, outrageous, personal and, above all, very funny: like Jeremy himself.
