Nish Kumar: It’s in Your Nature to Destroy Yourselves

Friday 22nd March 2019

Tyne Theatre & Opera House are thrilled to announce another addition to their incredible comedy programme for 2018/2019.

Double Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee Nish Kumar is taking his brand new show It’s in Your Nature to Destroy Yourselves on a nationwide tour of the UK, visiting Tyne Theatre & Opera House on Friday 22nd March.

The title is a quote from Terminator 2. There will be jokes about politics, mankind’s capacity for self-destruction and whether it will lead to the end of days. GOOD FUN STUFF. He’s the host of the Mash Report which you might have seen on BBC 2, or on a
Facebook video posted by someone you went to school with but haven’t spoken to in a while.

As seen on Live at the Apollo (BBC2), Taskmaster (Dave), Live From the BBC (Netflix), QI (BBC2) Have I Got News For You (BBC1) and Joel & Nish Vs The World (Netflix/Comedy Central).

“One of the best young comedians we have” – The Times

“A masterclass by a no-frills stand-up at the height of his powers” – The Guardian

“Intelligent, inventive, thought-provoking and delivered with a passion, urgency and enthusiasm that makes an hour feel like a fantastic ten minutes” – Time Out

Nish Kumar is the latest name to be added to Tyne Theatre & Opera House’s jam-packed comedy line-up for 2018/2019, which already features the likes of Sara Pacoe, Dylan Moran, Rich Hall, Lost Voice Guy and many more!

Theatre director Joanne Johnson says: “We have so many big comedy names set to perform here in the last few months of 2018, and our comedy line-up for 2019 is continuing to expand, with more to be announced. We’re continuing to book the biggest comedy acts, and I really feel that Tyne Theatre is now the leading venue for comedy in Newcastle upon Tyne. Many of these comedians are selling out, so we recommend booking well in advance!”
