Nish Kumar

Long word… long word… blah blah blah… i’m so clever

Expressive, articulate and mild-mannered comedian Nish Kumar “is the Asian answer to John Oliver. Fiercely intelligent, he is the voice of liberal common sense, calling to account stupid thinking wherever he may encounter it” (Chortle). An Edinburgh Festival regular since 2009, Kumar has featured on The Guardian’s Top 10 Jokes of the Festival and is one half of the stand-up duo The Gentlemen of Leisure.

This is an over 15s, seated show
