In PRESENT/TENSE comedian Nathan D’Arcy Roberts (twice nominated for the BBC New Comedy Award, writer for Horrible Histories & The Emily Atack Show) takes an analytic look at his life. An hour of stand-up comedy full of observations and anecdotes touching on issues that his therapist has described as ‘funny’, ‘relatable’, and ‘unresolved.’
What is it about McDonalds that turns civilized people savage? How did he learn of a family member’s incarceration via a BBC Three documentary? What time does the bar stop selling food?
Nathan will endeavour to answer all these questions and more!
