Nish Kumar is a familiar face on comedy shows such as 8 Out Of 10 Cats, QI, Live At The Apollo and Have I Got News For You but will now bring his own show to Frome.

The double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee will joke about politics, mankind’s capacity for self-destruction and if it will lead to the end of days.

The show, titled It’s In Your Nature To Destroy Yourself, aims to have people laughing from start to finish.

Nish has achieved huge success on the stand-up circuit with five rave reviewed solo stand-up shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has been nominated for a number of other comedy awards.

Nish Kumar: It’s In Your Nature To Destroy Yourself will be at the Cheese & Grain, in Market Yard, at 7.30pm on October 14.

Tickets, priced £22, are available online at
