    'The No Direction Home comedians are a very exciting, interesting and creative bunch of people to be around. And they are very funny!'

    Nish Kumar

    Let’s hear it for the refugee and migrant comedy collective, back with another gut-busting online show – this time, with Rosie Jones headlining.

    No Direction Home, the stand-up comedy group mentored by award-winning comedian Tom Parry, return following their sold-out summer Zoom gig for Refugee Week.

    Rosie Jones headlines a show featuring comedians Krishna Vytelingum, Edin Suljic, Nour-Ani Sisserian and Yasmeen Ghrawi, hosted by Tom Parry.

    Since the group’s creation in 2018, they have brought hilarious and uplifting comedy to gigs around the country with guest headliners including Romesh Ranganathan, Nish Kumar, Sindhu Vee, Joel Dommett and Suzi Ruffell.

    Rosie Jones has appeared as a guest on TV shows including Live at the Apollo, The Jonathan Ross Show, 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Mock the Week.

    Jones completed two sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with Fifteen Minutes, described by The Scotsman as ‘elegantly crafted and mischievous to its bones’, and Backward.

    As a writer, she worked on hit Netflix series Sex Education, and she has acted in TV programmes including Silent Witness.

    Created by Counterpoints Arts and Camden People’s Theatre, No Direction Home is an ongoing project of workshops, mentoring and performance for new comics.

    This event is live-streamed exclusively for the Southbank Centre and presented in partnership with Counterpoints Arts.
