Comedian Reginald D Hunter will be coming to Cambridge in May and delighting fans with his provocative and sometimes controversial brand of humour.

Hunter has embarked on a 45-date tour of the UK called The Man who Attempted to do as Much as Such after a hugely successful year filming and performing around the globe, and he will be at the Corn Exchange on May 2.

Having appeared at the Melbourne Comedy Festival and Sydney Opera House Gala in Australia early in 2014, Hunter then made his debut in New Zealand at the Comedy Festival Opening Gala before going on to appear in Auckland and Wellington.

He then moved closer to home with his first tour of mainland Europe before travelling back to his birthplace in America to film Reginald D Hunter’s Songs Of The South - a three-part BBC Two series documenting his epic road trip from North Carolina to New Orleans through 150 years of American popular song.

The comedian has been in the UK for just under two decades and in that time he has become one of the industry’s best-known performers. His work often crosses lines others fear to tread with a distinctive take on subjects including race and sexuality.

His work is brutally honest and considered controversial, but Hunter argues that it is always meticulously thought-out and he has never been afraid to face challenging issues head-on, even when the focus is on his own principles or beliefs.

Hunter is a well-known face on television and is a regular on shows such as 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, QI and Have I Got News For You.
