AFTER the massive sell out success at last year’s Edinburgh Festival of his critically acclaimed fourth solo show ‘Ruminations on the Nature of Subjectivity’ Nish Kumar is set to tour for the first time.
His new show ‘Long Word… Long Word… Blah Blah Blah… I’m So Clever’ recently won Best International Show at the New Zealand Comedy Festival and was the most reviewed show at Edinburgh Festival 2015. 
In the show Nish asks – does comedy need to be politically neutral? 
Why is comedy leaning to the left and is that even a problem? He examines the changing political landscape and how as we've become more liberal in our outlook on social issues, we've become increasingly conservative economically. He looks at a world in which a black James Bond seems achievable, but at the same time our financial system seems to be based entirely on the game Monopoly. And he asks whether the left is worse at branding its ideas than Islamic fundamentalists.
He will be at South Street in Reading on Thursday, November 19 and Norden Farm in Maidenhead on Saturday, November 28.
