No Direction Home: With Nish Kumar

Since autumn 2018 Camden People’s Theatre, Counterpoints Arts and award-winning comedian Tom Parry (Pappy’s; Badults; The Lost Disc) have been running the No Direction Home stand-up programme – a unique new course for aspiring comics from refugee and migrant backgrounds. The first gig was a huge hit and with ongoing coaching from Tom Parry the group will be performing five gigs at Camden People’s Theatre in the first half of 2019.

We’re excited to announce that this gig will feature a very special guest headliner: Nish Kumar! A huge star of stand-up and TV, Nish Kumar will also spend time advising the aspiring No Direction Home aspiring comedians.

Watch No Direction Home performing at their comedy gig in November 2018.
