Twice as Nice Comedy @ Grove Hammersmith Sunday 16 March: Al Lubel & Nish Kumar


Al Lubel

Al Lubel became a lawyer to please his mother and a comedian to please himself (which did not please his mother). After graduating from law school in Florida, Al moved to Los Angeles, passed the California Bar Exam on his first try and wouldn’t you know it, immediately began the practice of stand-up comedy. Al quit the law. This was a good decision, because within a year he won the $100,000 Grand Prize for comedy on Star Search. Doing the “The Tonight Show” was a childhood fantasy, so when Al heard that Johnny Carson was retiring, he auditioned and became one of the last comics to appear with Johnny. More recently, Al just made his fifth appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman. Even though comedy is his first love, Al admits to missing the practice of law. “I’d like to have one more trial, something serious like a murder trial because as my client’s fate hangs in the balance I’d like to see his reaction when I whisper in his ear…I’m a comedian!”

‘ A terrifically funny comedian’ David Letterman

Nish Kumar

 ‘Massively charming and very witty … a delightful talent’ Time Out

‘Impressive and accomplished….full of confidently delivered, wryly witty tales that delight in the quirks and possibilities of language.’ ★★★★ Scotsman

‘A warm, likable presence, always bubbling with ideas and an inescapable urge to communicate them…. Kumar picks out his own weaknesses and holds them up to highly entertaining public ridicule.’ Guardian

‘What an assured debut this is from Nish Kumar. A calling card which proves beyond doubt that he is already a skilled comic, preloaded with an hour of polished, gimmick-free stand-up guaranteed to do the job.’ Chortle

One of Dave’s Top Ten jokes of the Fringe 2012.

with Sam Deards “Bloody funny and very charming – highly recommended” (Mark Dolan C4 Balls of Steel), Stella Graham, Murray Porter & MC Bobby Freeman “Full of performance skills” Steve Bennett, Chortle
