Eshaan Akbar: The Pretender

presented by Phil McIntyre Live ltd by arrangement with Blue Book Management

Whether it’s you, the person you go on a date with, your boss, or the opinion-makers on TV, we’re all pretending we know what we’re doing. We don’t. And it’s about time we all had a proper laugh about it.

After supporting some of the biggest acts in the UK, including Micky Flanagan, Jason Manford and Kae Kurd, be sure to buy tickets for this much-anticipated debut tour.

As seen on Mock The Week (BBC), QI (BBC), Live At The Apollo (BBC), heard on award-winning podcasts Have A Word, Ninetwentynine, and Spitting Image, as well as LBC, Times Radio, and Radio 4. Eshaan Akbar brings us his debut tour, The Pretender.
