Nish Kumar

Critically acclaimed comic, internationally famed meme and wonderfully nice gentleman, Nish Kumar is a comedian, and a bloody good one at that (Time Out). 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 and 2016.

Alongside stand-up, Nish is a frequent voice and face across both television and radio. Following a successful pilot in 2016, Nish completed two series of his own topical show for BBC Radio 4, Spotlight Tonight, which he also hosts as well as hosting both The News Quiz and Newsjack. On screen you can catch up with Nish on the likes of Q.I., Mock The Week and Live At The Apollo, both as a stand-up guest and host (all BBC Two), Have I Got News For You and The John Bishop Show (BBC One), 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), Russell Howard’s Stand-Up for Central, Drunk History, The Alternative Comedy Experience and Live At The Comedy Store (all Comedy Central), Alan Davies As Yet Untitled (Dave) and Taskmaster (Dave). Nish starred alongside fellow comic Joel Dommett in a 6-part travelogue for Comedy Central, Joel and Nish vs The World and he hosts his own satirical, spoof, news series, The Mash Report, for BBC Two.

In 2020, during the Coronavirus pandemic, Nish created and starred in a new series Hello America for the short lived American streaming platform Quibi.  

’It has been a period of upheaval and uncertainty with COVID and the political situation.  You will be amazed by my capacity to somehow take all these things personally.’

‘Comedian Nish Kumar was booed off stage after making Brexit jokes at a charity
event on Monday night. Kumar, who hosts the BBC's Mash Report, was performing at the
Lord's Taverners annual charity cricket lunch.’
