John Kearns Don't Worry They're Here (United Kingdom)

Melbourne International Comedy Festival proudly presents

John Kearns Don't Worry They're Here (UK)

Winner Best Comedy Show 2014 Edinburgh Comedy Awards

Winner Best Newcomer 2013 Edinburgh Comedy Awards

Nominee Barry Award 2015 Melbourne International Comedy Festival 

The only performer to win Edinburgh Comedy Awards for both Best Newcomer and Best Comedy Show, John Kearns is a unique and unmissable performer. He takes stand-up to places few dare to tread as he balances simplicity and silliness with sublime comic timing.

John Kearns is a true comedy original, praised by crowds and contemporaries the world over. Fresh off the back of hit Edinburgh Fringe and London seasons, he delivers a delightfully absurd monologue about the idiosyncrasies of everyday life. But don’t be fooled by his purposely peculiar character – there’s far deeper humour to be uncovered.

It won’t be an hour of conventional comedy, but definitely an hour you won’t regret, or forget!

‘If you appreciate intellectually ambitious humour as well as Live at the Apollo hilarity go and see him. ★★★★★' Evening Standard (UK)

‘It’s droll and distinctive – but also full-on hilarious. ★★★★½' The Times (UK)

‘Heading for the comedy stratosphere… you’re in the hands of a master.’ The Guardian (UK)
