NISH KUMAR ‘IT’S IN YOUR NATURE TO DESTROY YOURSELVES’TOUR 2018

 

DOUBLE EDINBURGH COMEDY AWARD NOMINEE

ROSE D’OR – BEST RADIO COMEDY AWARD WINNER

Double Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee, Nish Kumar is taking his brand new show on a national tour of the UK. The title is a quote from Terminator 2. There will be jokes about politics, mankind’s capacity for self-destruction and if this will lead to the end of days. GOOD FUN STUFF. He’s the host of the Mash Report, which you might have seen on BBC 2 or on a Facebook video posted by someone you went to school with but haven’t really spoken to in a while.

“…A master-class by a no-frills stand-up at the height of his powers” – THE GUARDIAN

Critically acclaimed comic, internationally famed meme & wonderfully nice gentleman, Nish Kumar is a comedian, and a bloody good one at that (Time Out). Nish has achieved huge success on the stand-up circuit with five rave reviewed solo stand-up shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, two of which have been nominated for the prestigious Comedy Award for Best Show in both 2015 & 2016. Nish has also received nominations for Best Show at the 2013 Leicester Comedy Festival & Breakthrough Act at the 2014 Chortle Awards. In 2014 along with four other specially selected comics, Nish embarked on a tour of India with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow India and is regularly booked for gigs worldwide including festivals in Hong Kong, Melbourne and New Zealand.

“…One of the best young comedians we have” – THE TIMES

Alongside stand-up Nish is a frequent voice and face across both television and radio and was the 2015/2016 host of topical comedy show, Newsjack for Radio 4 Extra. Following a successful pilot in 2016, Nish has completed two series of his own topical show for BBC Radio 4, Spotlight Tonight, which he also hosts. On screen you can catch up with Nish on the likes of Q.I., Mock The Week & Live At The Apollo both as a stand-up guest and host (all BBC Two), Have I Got News For You & The John Bishop Show (BBC One), 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), Russell Howard’s Stand-Up for CentralDrunk History, The Alternative Comedy Experience & Live At The Comedy Store (all Comedy Central) and Alan Davies As Yet Untitled & Taskmaster (Dave). He also has his own stand up special ‘Live From the BBC’ (Netflix). Most recently Nish starred alongside fellow comic Joel Dommett in a 6-part travelogue for Comedy Central, ‘Joel and Nish vs The World’ that is coming back for a second series. He also hosts his own new satirical, spoof, news series, The Mash Report, for BBC Two with more shows confirmed for later this year.
