Never miss another 'Nish Kumar' show
Best Friends Club #BFC: Nish Kumar, Ed Gamble, James Acaster
Nish Kumar, Ed Gamble and James Acaster are friends. Best Friends. Founder members of the Best Friends Club. These three uber-pals will each do some stand up and then explain what it is they bring to the BFC and why that makes it so delicious as a thing. Why not come have a look? Bring a chum maybe?
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Stand up comedian who was nominated for Best Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival and has been heard on BBC Radio 4.
'Massively charming and very witty... a delightful talent' (Time Out)
'Impressive and accomplished... full of confidently delivered, wryly witty tales that delight in the quirks and possibilities of language' (The Scotsman)
'Superb... delivered with such glorious abandon' (List)
'A comedian on the up... An ingenious, witty look at identity that suggests Kumar
will soon be getting known for all the right reasons' (The Times)
A highly polished, subtly innovative stand-up... he nails the punchlines over and over again, thanks to taut, economical writing that puts audience pleasure firmly ahead of self-indulgence... His is a talent worth catching up with' (The Guardian)
'A laughter-filled hour' (The Daily Telegraph).

Ed Gamble is a stand-up comedian, writer and actor. Ed has appeared on some of the UK’s most popular TV shows: Mock the Week (BBC Two), Man Down (Channel 4), Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC Two) and Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Two), as well as presenting radio shows for BBC Radio One and BBC Radio Four. He won the prestigious Chortle award for Best Compere in 2014.
Prior to this, Ed was co-writer and host of the iTunes-topping Peacock and Gamble Podcast as part of his double-act with comedian Ray Peacock. Peacock and Gamble also performed a sell-out UK tour in 2012, which was described as “a triumph of live comedy” (Fringe Guru) and “incessantly hilarious” (The Guardian).

Winning over critics and fans alike, James Acaster has earned himself a reputation as one of the most hotly tipped acts of 2012. Effortlessly confident, James's appreciation for the whimsy and detail of everyday life are a breath of fresh air. His laid back style, playful wit and appetite for the unconventional make for an evening of mirth and hilarity, and a night in his company is a treat to behold.
Since winning Laughing Boy New Act of the Year, James has gone from strength to strength appearing on Dave's One Night Stand, Russell Howard's Good News (BBC Three) and Show & Tell (E4) whilst also playing to over 100,000 people on tour with Milton Jones.
'Curious, original, immensely enjoyable stuff' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Deliciously daft and no slouch in the surprises department... One of comedy’s most original voices' (Evening Standard)
'Reminiscent of Stewart Lee or Richard Herring but suffused with enough of his
own personality to sound crisp and fresh' (The Independent)
'Stand-up of the highest most playful order' (The Guardian).
