TV: Joel & Nish Vs The World, Comedy Central UK

Very nice work if you can get it. For Nish Kumar anyway. For Joel Dommett it is more painful.

In this new globetrotting series Joel Dommett and Nish Kumar travel the world visiting some of the toughest people on the planet to see if they can do what the locals do. Well, at least fitness obsessive Dommett does. Most of the time, judging from this first episode, Kumar stands around with his hands in his pockets laughing and/or offering a sarcastic commentary.

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.

Interview: Nish Kumar

At the start of the Edinburgh Fringe 2016 the Evening Standard asked me to interview someone who would pick up a Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination. I took a punt on Manchester United fan Nish Kumar but it really wasn't a big gamble. Kumar is very much a rising star who has found his voice in recent years.
