Nish Kumar’s New Show To Play Newport

Double Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee, Nish Kumar is taking his brand new show, , “it’s in your nature to destroy yourselves” on a national tour of the UK this autumn and will be visiting Newport Riverfront on September 22.

The shows title is a quote from Terminator 2 and covers the shows criteria of jokes about politics, mankind’s capacity for self-destruction and if this will lead to the end of days. 

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. 

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. 

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.
