A TOP television comedian is preparing to bring his brand new show to a Colchester venue as part of his latest tour.

Nish Kumar will be stopping off at Charter Hall, in Cowdray Avenue, in September to perform his new routine Don’t Kill My Vibe.

The show, taking place on October 31, has been described as “80 minutes of sweet, sweet vibe killing”.

It will see him tackling climate collapse, income inequality and the emotional sensation of being a British Indian man who isn’t going to vote for a British Indian Prime Minister.

Nish said: “As the world collapses around us, I look forward to dragging my increasingly decrepit body out on tour and doing the only thing that still makes sense to me – stand up comedy.”

Nish, who is the host of The Mash Report and Pod Save the UK, was named as one of The Guardian and The Telegraph’s 50 Best Comedians of the 21st Century.

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

His last tour, Your Power, Your Control, played to sell-out audiences up and down the country and was critically acclaimed when it debuted in 2022 - it was also released as a special on Sky Comedy in 2023.

On top of this, he released a Netflix special as part of the Comedians of The World series, and appeared alongside fellow comics Joel Dommett in 12-part travelogue Joel and Nish vs The World for Comedy Central and Josh Widdicombe in Sky Max’s Hold The Front Page.

Nish is also a frequent face across other shows, featuring on classics such as Taskmaster, Live At The Apollo, QI and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown.
