Richard Blackwood first set his sights on entertaining at the tender age of eight after watching comic, Richard Pryor live in concert on BBC 2.

At the age of 20, Richard graduated from university with a BA honours in Business Studies, but instead of donning a suit and commencing the 9-5 routine, he decided to pursue his dream in the world of entertainment.

In 1993 Richard performed his first stand up show at The Spot in Covent Garden and for the first time he realised what all his friends had been telling him for years – he was a natural.

After choosing a category, two or three choices were listed (for example, a category on hair might be divided into blonde, brunette, and redhead), and the Picker was asked to eliminate one of the choices.
