Andy Parsons returns to King’s Hall, Ilkley on Thursday 5 March with his new show HEALING THE NATION

Yes, he’s back. Two years since his last tour Peak Bullsh*t, household name and nonsense-nailer Andy Parsons is back on the road with HEALING THE NATION – and Andy is confident that playing to a whole host of theatres across the UK will undoubtedly mend the myriad divisions this country faces.

If current media tropes are to be believed, everybody exists in their own social media bubble and are up in arms about everything – be it Brexit/climate change/transgenders/ badgers. So come and celebrate what it means to be British in 2020 – freedom of speech, tolerance, tolerance of freedom of speech, freedom of intolerant speech, less freedom with more intolerant speech, but still some tolerance.

As seen on Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo, Q.I. etc. – and repeated on Dave. As also seen on 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 fronted Independent Age’s latest Campaign Against Loneliness. In the Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards 2019, the campaign’s flagship video – starring Andy – won a Silver award in the Social Media & Short Videos category. The video has had six million views thus far.

Since being a writer on the legendary Spitting Image, Andy won the Time Out Comedy Award in 2002 and has 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.
