John Kearns: Don’t Worry They’re Here

John Kearns is the only ever winner of both the Best Show and Best Newcomer prize at the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Awards. He presents his latest stand-up show, in an hour of “richly idiosyncratic comedy, frequently compared to Tony Hancock” (The Guardian).

Following highly acclaimed, sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe and at London’s Soho Theatre, John dons his false teeth and monk wig for his debut UK tour. Directed by Jon Brittain (Olivier Award winner).

As seen starring in BBC3’s Top Coppers, guesting on Channel 4’s 8 Out Of 10 Cats and heard on his own BBC Radio Four series.
