Massively charming and very witty… a delightful talent” – Time Out

‘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

“With his combination of book smarts, righteous passion and sardonic wit, Nish Kumar is the Asian answer to John Oliver” ★★★★ Chortle

 ‘Another excellent show…. Weighty subjects, quality delivery.’ ★★★★ The List

‘Brilliantly executed…. a show that should win Kumar a lot more fans.’  ★★★★ Bruce Dessau, Beyond the Joke

‘A comedian on the up…. An ingenious, witty look at identity that suggests Kumar will soon be getting known for all the right reasons.’ The Times

‘A highly polished, subtly innovative stand-up…. He nails the punchlines over and over again, thanks to taut, economical writing that puts audience pleasure firmly ahead of self-indulgence…. His is a talent worth catching up with.’ Guardian
