This is a stand-up comedy show for people who like stand-up comedy shows by a man that does stand-up comedy. Depending on your opinion, that man is either “a comedian on the up” (The Times), “a comedian I’ve never heard of” (Audience Member) or “a very clever boy” (Nish Kumar)
This is Nish’s first solo tour. You may have watched him support Milton Jones or David O’Doherty, or seen him on Comedy Central’s The Alternative Comedy Experience curated by Stewart Lee, Live at the Comedy Store and Stand up Central. Or BBC 3’s, Live at the Edinburgh Festival and Sweat the Small Stuff.
Nish has also been on The Josh Widdicombe Show on XFM, BBC Radio 4 on The Now Show and more recently was the host of BBC Radio 4 Extra Newsjack. Alternatively you could have just sat next to him at Nandos. Now come and see him on tour.
‘If you like your comedy to be intelligent, inventive, thought-provoking and delivered with a passion, urgency and enthusiasm that makes an hour feel like a fantastic ten minutes, then you’re going to love Nish Kumar’s show….a truly impressive piece of stand-up from a comic in full control of his material and onstage persona.’ ★★★★★ Time Out
‘A tight, smart set from a comic who confesses self-absorption while engaging expansively with the way we live now.’ ★★★★ Guardian
‘A laughter-filled hour…. You’ll leave both thinking hard and having had a cracking good time.’ ★★★★ Daily Telegraph
‘With his combination of book smarts, righteous passion and sardonic wit, Nish Kumar is the Asian answer to John Oliver.’ ★★★★ Chortle
