Why go and see it?

It has been a period of upheaval and uncertainty with COVID and the political situation. You will be amazed by my capacity to somehow take all these things personally.

Little Wander in association with PBJ Management present…Nish Kumar ‘Control’

“Comedian Nish Kumar was booed off stage after making Brexit jokes at a charity event

on Monday night. Kumar, who hosts the BBC's Mash Report, was performing at the Lord's

Taverners annual charity cricket lunch.” - BBC News Report - 3rd December 2019

TAKE….

“You can boo, but booing’s got nothing to do with it” - Bob Dylan

….BACK….

“Man, I’ve got grown men @ing me bulls**t/You’re getting way too old for the timeline” -Stormzy

….CONTROL

“I was at a hospital the other night where I think there were a few coronavirus patients

and I shook hands with everybody, you will be pleased to know, and I continue to shake

hands.” - Boris Johnson - 3rd March 2020

What the critics say

Kumar is the smartest, and often the silliest, political comic we’ve got: acute, furious and often the ridiculous fall guy of his own jokes.
- The Guardian
One of the best young comedians we have
- The Times

Not originally intended to be a theatre, the buildings that comprise the Grand Opera House York officially opened in 1902 with Little Red Riding Hood starring Florrie Ford. Since then it has been owned by FJ Butterworth, the Shepherd of Shambles and the India Pru Co. Ltd who spent £4,000,000 restoring the theatre to its former glory in 1987.
