As a master of menial tasks, it’s a tragedy that he never meddled with ambition. But now it’s alive and he must appease it. Fresh from the bath, flibbertigibbet Richard Todd blurts out his show no greater than his nature allows.
“How much happier the man who believes his native town to be the world than he who aspires to be greater than his nature will allow.” so said Dr Frankenstein, to himself, in his head, after making a botch job of building a man. Writer and comic Richard agrees.
A fearless performer, Todd has been featured at Toronto Animation Festival (Official Selection), Melbourne Animation Festival and London International Animation Festival. Outside of stand-up he works as an art tutor with the homeless and people with drug addiction.
