Since beginning his comedy career in 2006, Nish has achieved global success on the stand-up circuit with his rave-reviewed solo stand-up shows receiving huge recognition from industry and fans alike.

He has also hosted BBC Radio 4 Extra's topical comedy show Newsjack. "Critically acclaimed comic, internationally famed meme & wonderfully nice gentleman, Nish Kumar is a comedian, and a bloody good one at that." (Time Out). "The affable comic expertly blends comedy and commentary in a routine that snipes unpityingly at Britain’s political class." (The Guardian). 'Impressive and accomplished... full of confidently delivered, wryly witty tales that delight in the quirks and possibilities of language' (The Scotsman) Nish Kumar was placed in Ents24's top 10 hardest-working comedians 2016.

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), Mock The Week (BBC Two) and releasing his own three part Netflix special in 2018. '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). James Acaster was placed in Ents24's top 10 hardest-working comedians 2016.
