News: UK Tour for Award Winner John Kearns

The only winner of both the Best Show and Best Newcomer Edinburgh Comedy Awards, John Kearns is taking his new bold, funny and thought-provoking show, directed by Jon Brittain, on tour in 2018 after a successful sold out run at the Soho Theatre. The tour starts on January 28 in Coventry and ends on May 27 in Wells.

Don’t Worry, They’re Here is a comic, heart-warming monologue by John Kearns that highlights the absurdities of the ordinary. This is a stand-up routine of someone who has the everyday worries of the common man in a small world, but who is unusually insistent in expressing them. Rooted in the seemingly mundane conversations with his local cafe owner and a story about a bet he placed at the bookies, Kearns springboards from the minutia in British culture into an exploration of universal fears and human emotion.

With a show that travels from a massage parlour, to a supermarket check-out and then to a horse racing track, this fast-paced comedy tour de force, is an emotional yet hilarious story that highlights the fragility and absurdity of life. 

John Kearns has previously appeared on BBC's Top Coppers, Channel 4's ‎Cats Does Countdown, Dave's Drunk History, ITV’s Harry Hill’s Alien Fun Capsule and Harry Hill’s Tea Time, ITV2’s @Elevenish and on BBC Radio 4 with his own comedy series. He also enjoyed another magnificent sold-out run at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where he thrilled audiences at The Monkey Barrel throughout August. Don’t Worry They’re Here has gone on to a successful two week London transfer in the West End’s Soho Theatre.
