Stand-up comedian Rhys James has announced Snitch, his first nationwide tour.
Talking about the premise, his promoters explain: "In early 2019, Rhys was asked to go back to his school and inspire the Year 11s. Given that Year 11s are a nightmare and there was no fee, he ghosted the teacher who had emailed, but when you think back to yourself at that age it's impossible not to wonder: was the past even good? Then again, is the present?
"While so many people are concerned about 'cancel culture' and rallying against political correctness, Rhys thinks we aren't cancelling enough. Specifically, the hundreds of murder podcasts that pretty much explain how to get away with killing someone. In lieu of them being banned, it's time to figure out why we're so fascinated by murder, and why so many more women listen to the true crime genre than men."
