Comedy Cuts Barbershop Tour part of Comedy Genius Season FREE


“There’s an old African saying…”

This October sees a pop up barbershop experience like no other! Events company We Are Parable are faithfully reimagining the iconic barbershop depicted in iconic 90’s sitcom Desmond’s throughout Black History Month and beyond, as part of the BFI’s “Comedy Genius” season.

The pop up will act as a fully functional barbershop, with free and discounted haircuts on offer, a chance to watch a classic episode of “Desmond’s” and stand up comedians popping in for a “trim” and a bit of banter. To top it off, Trix Worrell, creator and writer of Desmond’s will be on hand to talk through his experiences of making a show that has a special place in all our hearts.

We Are Parable will tour the barbershop in five major cities, launching with Birmingham on Friday 19th October - Sunday 21st October, 10am - 8pm. Comedy Cuts Barbershop (Upper Level), Bullring, Birmingham, B5 4BU.

In addition, the team will also show some of the finest Black Comedy has to offer and will begin their programme with Friday and Boomerang on the 20th and 21st October at The Everyman Mailbox Birmingham.
