“It’s in your nature to destroy yourselves” – that’s what Arnie commented in Terminator 2 and that’s what Nish Kumar will think about at The Lowry.

Double Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee Nish Kumar brings his huge nationwide tour to The Lowry this February.  He’ll be laughing about politics.  And he’ll be joking about mankind’s capacity for self-destruction and whether this will all lead to the end of days.

The host of the Mash Report, Nish Kumar is a highly acclaimed comic.  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. Nish has also received nominations for Best Show at the 2013 Leicester Comedy Festival & Breakthrough Act at the 2014 Chortle Awards. In 2014 along with four other specially selected comics, Nish embarked on a tour of India with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow India.  He is regularly booked for gigs worldwide including festivals in Hong Kong, Melbourne and New Zealand.

Alongside stand-up Nish is a frequent voice and face across both television and radio.  He was the 2015/2016 host of topical comedy show, Newsjack for Radio 4 Extra.  He then completed two series of his own topical show for BBC Radio 4, Spotlight Tonight, which he also hosts.

Nish is also a regular guest on the likes of QI, Mock The Week, Live At The Apollo, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Drunk History and Have I Got New For You.
