The only winner of both the Best Show and Best Newcomer Edinburgh Comedy Awards, John Kearns is taking his new bold, funny and thought-provoking show, directed by Jon Brittain, on tour in 2018 after a successful sold out run at the Soho Theatre.
Don’t Worry, They’re Here is a comic, heart-warming monologue by John Kearns that highlights the absurdities of the ordinary. This is a stand-up routine of someone who has the everyday worries of the common man in a small world, but who is unusually insistent in expressing them. Rooted in the seemingly mundane conversations with his local cafe owner and a story about a bet he placed at the bookies, Kearns springboards from the minutia in British culture into an exploration of universal fears and human emotion.
With a show that travels from a massage parlour, to a supermarket check-out and then to a horse racing track, this fast-paced comedy tour de force, is an emotional yet hilarious story that highlights the fragility and absurdity of life.
John Kearns has previously appeared on BBC’s Top Coppers, Channel 4’s Cats Does Countdown, Dave’s Drunk History, ITV’s Harry Hill’s Alien Fun Capsule and Harry Hill’s Tea Time, ITV2’s @Elevenish and on BBC Radio 4 with his own comedy series. He also enjoyed another magnificent sold-out run at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where he thrilled audiences at The Monkey Barrel throughout August. Don’t Worry They’re Here has gone on to a successful two week London transfer in the West End’s Soho Theatre.
