A year and a half since his last tour, household name and nonsense-nailer Andy Parsons returns to The Courtyard with Healing The Nation.

Inspired by an encounter with a supermarket checkout attendant whilst purchasing a meal deal, Parsons’ latest tour promises a host of current references including everything from Brexit to badgers.

Known mostly for his appearances on comedy panel shows such as Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo and QI, Andy Parsons may also be recognised from BBC’s Question Time, The Daily Politics, This Week and Newsnight.

In the last year, Andy has hosted People’s Vote rallies at the Electric Ballroom, Central Hall Westminster and in Parliament Square to over 100,000 people as well as fronting Independent Age’s latest Campaign Against Loneliness.

Since being a writer on the legendary Spitting Image, Andy has won the Time Out Comedy Award in 2002 and performed stand-up all over the world. To date he has done five sell-out national tours and released the DVDs Britain’s Got Idiots, Gruntled, Slacktivist and Live & Unleashed – But Naturally Cautious. He was also responsible for the Slacktivist Action Group podcast, which played host to a wide range of MPs, journalists and comedians.

Andy Parsons will be at The Courtyard on Saturday, November 2 at 8pm. To book, call the box office on 01432 340555 or visit courtyard.org.uk. This show is recommended for ages 14+.

Audiences can upgrade their tickets for £7.95 to enjoy Prosecco and sweet canapés during the interval.
