No Direction Home was established by Counterpoints Arts with Camden People’s Theatre and top stand-up Tom Parry, who has mentored the group.

They have already won over audiences in a variety of venues in London and around the country, and have now secured their first West End run.

TV comic and stand-up Nish Kumar, says: “The No Direction Home comedians are a very exciting, interesting and creative bunch of people to be around. And they are very funny. The material is really good.”

No Direction Home performers are new talents with backgrounds in countries including Syria, Iran, Iraq, Ethiopia and Mali.

Yasmeen Ghrawi says: “No Direction Home is a space to show up/stand up, a space to be seen and heard, a space of celebration. We come from places of varying remoteness to the UK, some of us fresh off the back of a truck, others migrated here years ago. We hope to keep sharing the love – and our jokes.”
