Mock The Week’s Andy Parsons prepares to tell Bracknell: ‘We’ll be alright, trust me, I’m not a politician’


Renowned comic Andy Parsons will be coming to Bracknell this month.

He is due to perform his new show, Healing the Nation, at South Hill Park on Thursday, September 26.

A year and a half after his last tour, Peak B*****it, Andy wanted to create a nationwide show which would “undoubtedly mend the myriad divisions this country faces”.

Andy has taken part in Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo, Q.I, Question Time, The Daily Politics, This Week and Newsnight.

Over the last year, he has hosted People’s Vote rallies at the Electric Ballroom, Central Hall Westminster and in Parliament Square to over 100,000 people. He also fronted Independent Age’s latest Campaign against Loneliness.

Here’s an extract from his show: ‘It was 24th June 2016 and I found myself contemplating a supermarket meal deal. I only wanted a sandwich and I only needed a sandwich but given that I could get a snack and a drink for only 5p more it seemed financially irresponsible not to. I had spent so long pondering the EU Referendum result from the day before that I was now in a massive rush.

“The lad on the till scanned the first two items no problem but the third item, he couldn’t get to scan at all. I thought: this is going to be a nightmare – there was a queue building up and he looked like he was going to call the supervisor. Then, to his credit, he tried to scan it one more time. It wouldn’t scan – so he went ‘bip’ himself and chucked it through. And it was at that moment that I thought: ‘Oh, we’ll be alright as a country we will’.

“And we will be alright. Trust me. I’m not a politician.”
