Nish Kumar Brings New Show to the Tyne Theatre in 2022

The Tyne Theatre and Opera House are excited to announce that critically acclaimed comic, internationally famed meme & wonderfully nice gentleman Nish Kumar, will return to their stage with his brand-new show, Control, on Saturday 19th March 2022.

Nish says: “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…

Nish Kumar is the host of BBC2 show The Mash Report and one of the Guardian’s ‘Top Fifty Comedians of the 21st Century’.

Nish has achieved huge success on the stand-up circuit with five rave reviewed solo stand-up shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, two of which have been nominated for the prestigious Comedy Award for Best Show in both 2015 & 2016.

He is also known for his appearances on Live at the Apollo, Taskmaster, Netflix’s Comedians of the World, QI, Conan, The News, Joel and Nish vs The World and more.

In 2020, during the Coronavirus pandemic, Nish created and starred in a new series 'Hello America' for the short lived American streaming platform Quibi.

Theatre Director Joanne Johnson says: “We can’t wait to welcome Nish Kumar back to our stage next year. He’s one of the most important and entertaining voices in comedy currently and a really exciting addition to our 2022 comedy programme.”

Tickets for Nish Kumar - Control go on sale Wednesday 31st March 2021 at 10am and can be purchased from the Tyne Theatre and Opera House website.
