It has been a period of upheaval and uncertainty with COVID and the political situation. You will be amazed by my capacity to somehow take all these things personally. Your Power, Your Control is a new show from the former host of Late Night Mash and one of The Guardian's Top Top Fifty Comedians of the 21st Century. 'Political zingers delivered with fizzing energy' (Independent). 'Kumar is the smartest, and often the silliest, political comic we've got: acute, furious and often the ridiculous fall guy of his own jokes' ***** (Guardian).
