SRtRC speak to the stand-up comedian about immigration and racism
Show Racism the Red Card caught up with Jeremy Hardy on his Autumn–Winter tour at the Playhouse, Whitley Bay on December 1st.
The stand up comedian, well known for his BBC Radio 4 work including ‘I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue’ and ‘Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation’ and television appearances made time to talk with the campaign before his show.
The interview, which is now available on our YouTube channel discusses the contribution of migrants to the UK, services and economy and the current culture of blaming migrants for society’s problems. Jeremy also reveals his thoughts about first moving to London.
SRtRC is working on both a film about immigration and an update of the campaign’s main educational film. Both films will be released in 2015.
Jeremy Hardy is a supporter of the campaign and a member of the ‘Stand Up Against Racism’ (SUAR) initiative. You can see footage of Jeremy Hardy performing at a SUAR event in Newcastle (2010).
