Phil McIntyre Entertainments presents:- "Nish Kumar"

NISH Kumar is set to tour the UK with his 5th solo show:- 'Nish Kumar: Actions Speak Louder Than Words Unless You Shout The Words Real Loud'. This follows a month long run at the Pleasance Courtyard Cabaret Bar in August, where the show premieres.

The tour takes in 40 dates and starts, on Saturday, 1 October 2016, in Maidstone The Hazlitt and culminates, on 12 December 2016, at London's Duchess Theatre.

In 2016 Nish received a Fosters Comedy Edinburgh Award nomination and had the best reviewed show with the critically acclaimed sell out that was:- 'Long Word… Long Word… Blah Blah Blah…I'm So Clever', which went on to tour the UK, that included a 4 week run which was extended at London's Soho Theatre.

Following on from last year's show:- 'Actions Speak Louder Than Words Unless You Shout The Words Real Loud' is similarly political. This show includes topics like gentrification and colonisation.

He wonders, have rich people ruined the world?

Are hipsters and trendy people to blame for bad legislation?

And why are we still proud of the British Empire and not ashamed?

He puts across his own conspiracy theories. He also moots is there any point in doing comedy about politics?

Does shouting form the sidelines actually achieve anything?

Is profiting from political comedy a double standard?

Alongside stand up Nish is also a frequent voice and face across both television and radio. Since 2015 he has hosted the topical comedy show:- 'Newsjack' for Radio 4 Extra, which earlier this year won the Rose D'or for Best Radio Comedy Show. On screen you can catch up with Nish on the likes of Live From The BBC, Have I Got News For You (BBC), The John Bishop Show (BBC One), Russell Howard's Stand Up for Central (Comedy Central), The Alternative Comedy Experience (Comedy Central), Live at the Comedy Store (Paramount), Alan Davies As Yet Untitled (Dave) and Live At The Apollo (BBC Two). In December 2015 Nish was selected by Sky Arts to write a special Comedy Christmas Short in which he also starred. 2016 looks set to be big for Nish with various radio and television projects in development. Nish is also due to appear at the Just 4 Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal.

His previous shows were:- 'Ruminations on the Nature of Subjectivity' (and 1 of the Top 10 best reviewed shows in 2014), 2013 'Nish Kumar Is a Comedian' (which went onto a 2 week Soho Theatre that year) and in 2012 his debut show:- 'Who Is Nish Kumar?' (that received a Nomination for Best Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival 2013, a spot in Dave's Ten Funniest Jokes Of The Fringe and went on to do a 2 week Soho Theatre run). Alongside his stand up career, Nish has also starred in a number of comic plays including:- 'The Hotel' at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2009 for which he had a key role and in 'Wardens' at the 2013 Fringe Festival.
