No Direction Home is a pioneering project featuring stand-up comedians from refugee and migrant backgrounds, mentored by award winning comedian Tom Parry.

No Direction Home was created by Counterpoints Arts in partnership with Camden People’s Theatre and Tom Parry. Since 2018 they have performed gigs around the country, including at the Southbank Centre in London.

Guest headliners including Romesh Ranganathan, Nish Kumar, Sindhu Vee, Joel Dommett and Suzi Ruffell have also spent time with the group and shared tips and advice. Media coverage has included BBC News and BBC World Service.

In autumn 2020 the group are on a virtual tour of the UK, following a Zoom performance at the Edinburgh Festival in August.

Nish Kumar says: “The No Direction Home comedians are a very exciting, interesting and creative bunch of people to be around. And they are very funny! The material is really good.”
