Nish Kumar Live at the Soho Theatre

Nish Kumar appears on the Soho Theatre stage.

Featuring: Nish Kumar.


The host of BBC2's The Mash Report takes his turn in the standup showcase. Confidence and likability power him through a series of anecdotes that expend a lot of energy setting up often gentle punchlines. Among the best stories are Kumar's trip to see Shame at the cinema accompanied by his father, his response to a racist press question, and his attempt to rebrand as a cooler version of himself at uni.

Jack Seale, The Guardian, 2nd August 2017
