With his unique brand of satirical commentary, Andy Parson’s takes the stage at the Ealing Comedy Festival, where the audience will laugh both at him and themselves#
Parsons took to the comedy world after his stint as a legal clerk, which he described as “the most tedious thing I’ve ever done”. Thankfully, for the sake of our comedic sensibilities he abandoned the only marginally less interesting law career path and began building a career as a reputable funny man.
Parsons established London’s first sketch comedy club, TBA with Henry Naylor, who he later went on to record Parson’s and Naylor’s Pull Out Sessions with, a satirical radio show on BBC Radio 2. The pair also performed the show live in theatre at Edinburgh Fringe and at comedy festivals across Australia. Parson’s has appeared on They Think It’s All Over, QI and BBC Radio 5’s Fighting Talk.
Parson’s spent eight years as a captain on panel comedy game show Mock the Week. Last year, he left the show in order to pursue his personal project the monthly show and podcast the Slacktivist Action Group and in 2016 he will be headlining the side splitting line-up at Ealing Comedy festival. Quite the repertoire indeed.
