No Direction Home

Since autumn 2018 Camden People’s Theatre, Counterpoints Arts and award-winning comedian Tom Parry have been running the No Direction Home stand-up programme – a unique new course for aspiring comics from refugee and migrant backgrounds.

Counterpoints Arts runs No Direction Home as part of our PopChange work, in partnership with Camden People’s Theatre and comedian Tom Parry. It’s a project for new comics from refugee and migrant backgrounds, featuring workshops, expert tuition and gigs around the country.

After a series of workshops and more than a dozen gigs, featuring guest headliners such as Nish Kumar, Romesh Ranganatham, Suzi Ruffell, Joel Dommett and Lous Sanders, a new cohort have been recruited for 2020 and are currently learning and performing online.

Workshops have also been run for diverse groups in Kent, and with Headway East London.
