Following its launch via a 15-date Nationwide tour in spring 2012, a sold-out London residency throughout 2013, and a run of nine late-night shows at the Edinburgh Fringe, The New Wave heads back out on the road. The most significant tour of new comedy in over 20 years.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
