The plan for 2020


Joseph Parsons: Equaliser



Joseph Parsons (As seen on Channel 4) presents his debut hour: ‘Equaliser’. In this fun-filled hour of comedy, Parsons discusses fan culture, sporting idols and celebrates the LGBTQ+ heroes in sport.
With his trademark friendly high-energy presence on stage, Parsons will tell the uplifting story of how he challenged his anxiety of joining a football team.
In the wake of the recent homophobic comments of Israel Folau and Margaret Court, and in a world where hate is on the rise in sport, there are a host of incredible people paving the way for a brighter future. It’s a story that is being rewritten. This show hopes to be part of that.
This show is not just for sports fans, it’s for people who champion the underdog.
