THE LEGENDARY

Richard Dripping

-   -

who is he? poems still dripping old drips give us yer money get lost

 

OLD DRIPS

After 20 years of silence the money became impossible to resist and Dick returned for five concerts.  This led to the F*** THIS FOR A LAUGH performances.  Which went down well but made him that he had littlew to add to what he had already said and written.  The issues had moved on in that time and Richard was not the character to explore them.
 He also did a one off event in 2002 at the Jump Ship Rat in Liverpool after a few guest spots for friends over the years. 

2002

Two of the gigs in this period where very memorable because they nearly convinced him to carrry on.
