No Direction Home: With Joel Dommett

As part of our No Direction Home season at Camden People’s Theatre, we’re welcoming guest headliner Joel Dommett!

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. The last one featured none other than Nish Kumar!

Joel will also spend time advising the aspiring No Direction Home aspiring comedians.

// Camden People’s Theatre has a mission to support young and emerging artists making inventive new theatre – particularly about issues that matter to people right now.
