Story posted on

HOST of BBC2’s The Mash Report, Nish Kumar is bringing his brand new show, ‘It’s In Your Nature to Destroy Yourselves’, to Frome next month as part of his national tour of the UK. 

There will be jokes about politics, mankind’s capacity for self-destruction and if this will lead to the end of days – good fun stuff!

Critically-acclaimed comic, Nish has achieved huge success on the stand-up circuit with five rave reviewed solo stand-up shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, two of which have been nominated for the prestigious Comedy Award for Best Show in both 2015 and 2016. 

Nish has also received nominations for Best Show at the 2013 Leicester Comedy Festival & Breakthrough Act at the 2014 Chortle Awards. In 2014, along with four other specially selected comics, Nish embarked on a tour of India with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow India and is regularly booked for gigs worldwide including festivals in Hong Kong, Melbourne and New Zealand. 

 Alongside stand-up, Nish is a frequent voice and face across both television and radio and was the 2015/2016 host of topical comedy show, Newsjack for Radio 4 Extra. Following a successful pilot in 2016, Nish has completed two series of his own topical show for BBC Radio 4, Spotlight Tonight, which he also hosts. 

On screen you can catch up with Nish on the likes of Q.I., Mock The Week and Live At The Apollo, both as a stand-up guest and host (all BBC Two), Have I Got News For You and The John Bishop Show (BBC One), 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), Russell Howard’s Stand-Up for Central, Drunk History, The Alternative Comedy Experience & Live At The Comedy Store (all Comedy Central) and Alan Davies As Yet Untitled & Taskmaster (Dave). He also has his own stand up special ‘Live From the BBC’ (Netflix). 

Most recently, Nish starred alongside fellow comic Joel Dommett in a six-part travelogue for Comedy Central, ‘Joel and Nish vs The World’ that is coming back for a second series. He also hosts his own new satirical, spoof, news series, The Mash Report, for BBC Two with more shows confirmed for later this year.

Nish Kumar will perform at the Cheese & Grain on Sunday 14th October. For more information visit: www.cheeseandgrain.com
