ANDY PARSONS NEWS
'Hysterical live show. Andy Parsons is on fire' - The Mirror
'A merciless, Swiftian dissection. Bubbling over with righteous and very funny indignation' - The Times
With four sell out national tours, three DVD releases and a special for Comedy Central already under his belt, Andy Parsons, is back on the road in 2014 and coming to a theatre near you. Andy's fifth show, Live And Unleashed - But Naturally Cautious will see the star of BBC2's Mock The Week and Live At At The Apollo hit the road again, delivering more sharp comedy up and down the UK.
Andy has enjoyed huge success as a writer and performer on television, radio and the live comedy stage. As well as a series regular on the award-winning Mock The Week and numerous spots on Live At The Apollo, Andy has also appeared on QI, The Politics Show, Newsnight, World's Most Dangerous Roads, Saturday Live and Channel 4's Comedy Gala at the O2. Andy was also lead writer on ITV's hugely influential Spitting Image.
'His delivery multiplies the humour. Big laughs unloading both barrels at British political and public life' - The Guardian
'Britain's got precious few perceptive informed satirists, and Parsons is one of the best' - The Mail on Sunday
'Parsons is acerbic, sharp-witted and edgy... taking well-aimed potshots at politicians, celebrities and anyone who dares to talk rubbish' - The Express
'It's great to welcome sharp, topical comedy on to the live circuit - and Parsons remains one of its most skilful exponents' - The Guardian 'Andy Parsons' lethal mixture of anger and ridicule leaves the Big Society in tatters' - The Times Politicians complain of a left-wing media bias but there are plenty of right-wing comedians – it just seems that most of them are being investigated by Operation Yewtree. Maybe it's a deliberate smokescreen given that politicians, rather than journalists or estate agents, are now the least respected and trusted of all professions. Boris Johnson is the only current politician in the country with a popularity above –1. Comedians have seen this and are standing to be politicians. Are you going to lie back and let the clowns take over? Are you going to stick your head under the duvet as 'Bozzer' de Pfeffel Johnson rides his crazy zipwire into town?
