“If you like your comedy to be intelligent, inventive, thought-provoking and delivered with a passion, urgency and enthusiasm that makes an hour feel like a fantastic ten minutes, then you’re going to love Nish Kumar’s show. If you don’t like your comedy like that, then probably just go somewhere else, but you’ll be missing out on a corker.” – TimeOut

“Ruffell has nabbed the working class comedy crown for her 
generation. Sparky, energising, fun, an accomplished act who 
knows how to engage an audience” – Chortle

What happens when you tumble out of the closet and find yourself trying to work out exactly where you are on the gender and sexuality spectrum?

Rainbow Heart, the new musical show from The Bleeding Obvious endeavours to describe the experience through songs and tales of joy, grief, happiness, loss and defiance.

Touring again in 2018, it’s been referred to as “hilarious”, “thoughtful” and “astounding”. Featuring tracks from her debut album as well as new tunes, let The Bleeding Obvious take you on a rollercoaster rainbow ride…

With support.
