Nish Kumar is a stand-up comic who is not afraid to confront the big issues of the day and he’ll be doing just that what he touches down at the Tyne Theatre & Opera House in March.

The title of Nish Kumar’s latest show is a quote culled from ‘Terminator 2’: “It’s in your nature to destroy yourselves”, which may give you some indication of what he’ll be chatting about (I’m talking, yep, Brexit and all of that other stuff that points towards The End of Days). He’s a comedian adept at pulling apart the political positions of the day and giving them a damn good kicking, and with so many clashing views currently vying for airspace, he’s got a veritable smorgasbord of stuff to get his teeth into. Of course, TV viewers are familiar with his keen eye on shows such as The Mash Report as well as Have I Got News For You, QI and Taskmaster, but it’s in the live arena when he really cuts loose. This latest show was something of a wow at the Edinburgh Fringe last year and it reaches Newcastle on the back of a string of 5-star reviews. Don’t miss out.

Nish Kumar, Friday 22 March, Tyne Theatre & Opera House, Newcastle, 7.30pm, £23. tynetheatreandoperahouse.uk
