Pierre Novellie: You’re Expected To Care

Mon 24 May – Wed 9 Jun 21 60 minutes
Existing is exhausting. Endless empathy and engagement is expected of everyone.

You’ve got to be aware of all the complicated, horrific things in the world, don’t you? Even if they’re absolutely nothing to do with you? The only thing worse than trying is not trying, and vice-versa.


‘Packed full of belly laughs.’
★★★★★ Metro


Watch award-winning, five-star comedian Pierre Novellie bring some intellectual levity to various absolutely appalling subjects. This is a ‘rather laugh than cry’ show, not a ‘laugh then cry’ show.
