No Direction Home

Laughter unites us: an evening of stand-up by comics from refugee and migrant backgrounds, with guest headliners Suzi Ruffell and Romesh Ranganathan.

No Direction Home is a stand-up comedy group mentored by award-winning comedian Tom Parry. After a string of sell-out shows in London, they bring their unique brand of humour to Southbank Centre.

See the unexpected, insightful and downright funny performances from Arashk Farahani, Nour-ani Sisserian, Usman Khalid and Majid Adin.

Presented by Counterpoints Arts and Camden People's Theatre. Part of Refugee Week 2019.

Romesh Ranganathan has sold out major venues across the UK with his stand-up, including his national tour Irrational Live. He has made numerous TV appearances alongside his hit series The Misadventures of Romesh Ranganathan, Just Another Immigrant and The Ranganation.

Suzi Ruffell is regarded as one of the best up and coming acts in the comedy circuit. She is currently touring her new show Dance Like Everyone’s Watching.

Tom Parry, member of the sketch troupe Pappy’s, produces award-winning podcasts, television and stage shows, including his recent stand-up show Parryoke.

Majid Adin is an artist and animator from Iran, now living and working in London. Majid was shortlisted for the 2018 Groucho Maverick Award celebrating original, creative artwork that seeks to challenge the status quo.

Nour-Ani Sisserian is an actor and theatre director based in East London whose recent work includes Welcome to the UK at The Bunker and HOME Manchester, and Black Lives Black Words at the Bush Theatre.

Arashk Farahani is an Iranian performer and film-maker based in London who has recently started sharing his experiences through stand-up comedy.
