“Spectacular displays of verbal pyrotechnics … A confident, splendidly silly and sometimes dazzling show.” – 
Stephanie Merritt, THE OBSERVER

“He is one of the funniest and hardest-working comedians out there. His material is edgy without going too far, his routines are complex and assured, he’s likeable … and has some of the best gags I’ve heard.” – THE SCOTSMAN

“Unforgettable stage presence … intricately clever observation … A comedian who will never relax into formulaic gags to satisfy his audience.”  – EVENING STANDARD

Opening:  – Bas Rahman

Bas is an incredible talent, with a cheeky and dark style of comedy mixed in with very well-crafted routines that cover everything from her Muslim heritage, race, sex and anything that is taboo in her life. Bas will find the funny in it. A very gifted writer Bas has written for Mazwan Rizwan, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, been part of the BBC Writers Room as well as being part of the ERA:5050 which was an all-female writers room set up by Polly Kemp & Lizzie Berrington.

ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
