No Direction Home

A pioneering project featuring stand-up comedians from refugee and migrant backgrounds

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

Counterpoints Arts runs No Direction Home as part of its Pop Culture and Social Change (PopChange) programme. Created in partnership with Camden People’s Theatre, it’s a unique course for new comics from refugee and migrant backgrounds. Since 2018 they have performed more than 15 gigs around the country, including at the Southbank Centre in London.

Guest headliners including Romesh Ranganathan, Nish Kumar, Lous Sanders, 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 2020 No Direction Home has been running new groups online and staging our very first gigs on Zoom. We’re confident that working digitally will help us to reach more people than ever.

Join us on 21 June for a special online gig
