Live Review: Angel Comedy Club Opening Night With Nish Kumar, Tony Law, Tom Rosenthal, Yuriko Kotani, Jamali Maddix, Jarred Christmas

Every now and again I receive Facebook comments from circuit comedians telling me that I spend all my time swanning in and out of the Soho Theatre and the Eventim Apollo and don’t experience what it is like at the pub-based comedy club grass roots level. Well last night I did go to a comedy club in a pub, but to be perfectly honest the acts were so good and the atmosphere so conducive to comedy that I suspect I still don’t know what it is like at the coal face. Good sight lines, good air-conditioning, good audience, good acts.

Comedian Nish Kumar has contributed to a new anthology of writing about life in multicultural Britain today.

Latitude Review: Nish Kumar

The inevitable running gag at Latitude was Brexit. Numerous comedians had hastily fashioned routines out of the horror show of the referendum fallout. Most were clever from a cushioned, cosy white middle class perspective. Nish Kumar played a trump card. His Brexit routine hinged on an incident when he was on the receiving of post-poll racism.
