Jon Richardson

From Countdown

Jump to: navigation, search
For the contestant in Series 27, see John Richardson.

Jon Richardson, has been a contestant and a Team Captain in most episodes of 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown. He is also the husband of fellow contestant Lucy Beaumont who made her debut in December 2019.

He is a stand-up comedian and until December 2015, one of the regular team captains on 8 Out of 10 Cats. Following a conundrum worth 843 points, he claims to have beat Conor Travers for the record of highest total score on Countdown at that time; he also claims to hold the record for highest score in a single match, having scored 153 and 890 points in games where conundrums were worth increased values. Regardless of these alterations, having appeared in most episodes of 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, he has more wins than anybody else in Countdown history (73, some 50 more than Travers and Zarte Siempre), although he has racked up his fair share of losses too. His cumulative points total, albeit including many artificially inflated scores, is 5,070.

Despite sometimes playing down his ability for comedic purposes, he has been shown to be able to hold his own at Countdown and is arguably the best non-Countdown player to have taken part in Catsdown, indicated by spotting WHEREUPON in the first ever episode, albeit out of time, and beating 30th Birthday Championship semi-finalist Jon O'Neill on a numbers round.
