Nuffield theatre announce comedy line-up including Russell Kane and Romesh Ranganathan


Nuffield will play host to some of the UK’s top stand-up comedians in the coming months, including Jeremy Hardy, Andy Parsons, Nina Conti, Russell Kane, and Romesh Ranganathan.

Jeremy Hardy will visit Southampton on 18th October following his hugely successful spring tour earlier this year. Hardy is well known from his appearances on BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz and I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue, as well as his ongoing series Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation. Andy Parsons, who is well known for his regular appearances on BBC 2’s Mock the Week, will bring his Live and Unleashed – But Naturally Cautious tour to Nuffield on the following Sunday, 25th October.

The rest of the season features the already sold-out Nina Conti, the risk-taking Irish comic Tommy Tiernan, and the science comedy phenomenon Festival of the Spoken Nerd – fresh from their acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Festival. To complete the line-up for 2015, December will feature a visit from film critics/BBC Radio 5 hosts, Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo, who will bring their passionate movie opinions to the venue, with plenty of humour and audience interaction.

In January 2016, Nuffield will present the next edition of their popular Comedy Bar: BIG GIG nights, this time featuring MC Charlie Baker, Zoe Lyons (Mock the Week, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow), Brett Goldstein (Derek), and Doc Brown (Live at the Apollo, Miranda).

Nuffield will continue with its line-up of critically acclaimed comedians into spring 2016, with the multi-award winning comedian, presenter and actor, Russell Kane on 17th April, and Romesh Ranganathan on 25th April.

This exciting line-up of comedians follows a range of successful gigs by well-known acts over the past three years, including Adam Hills, Shappi Khorsandi, Marcus Brigstocke, and most recently, Josh Widdicombe.
