Comedian Andy Parsons brings his Healing the Nation tour to Tunbridge Wells and Folkestone

Can comedian Andy Parsons heal us all? The former Spitting Image scirptwriter is out on his tour, Healing the Nation, because he is confident that the nation can help itself, despite what it has been through so far over Brexit.

The comic, who is in Tunbridge Wells and Folkestone this month, recalls: “It was June 24, 2016 and I found myself contemplating a supermarket meal deal.

“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... 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.”

Andy will be at the Trinity Theatre in Tunbridge Wells on Friday, November 22, and Folkestone Quarterhouse on Saturday, November 30.
