Ken Parsons

Time Out dubbed him the Maestro of the Underground as he has been setting up events for comedy, music, spoken word and poetry for decades. He had formative years in Berlin- 87-95 and still plays there regularly as well as running a few rooms in Amsterdam.

Ken has countless of gigs under the belt including Glastonbury Festival, Cologne Comedy Festival, special guest at Musical Comedy Awards in London and a comedy sketch on the mainstage to a packed Paradiso. He is a headline act and has also opened for Ignacio Lopez, Marcel Lucont and Keith Farnan.

He is also a film actor, writer and accomplished musician ( guitar, voice and Celtic harp) and recording artist having worked in the studio with Sarah Brightman’s producer among others and supported acts like Fairport Convention, Gary Howard ( Flying Pickets) and New Model Army.

Ken is polyglot so you can expect wonderfully absurd observations on languages, accents and human interactions, great comedy, political satire, legendary parody songs as well as zany head-trips, masterful misdirection, surreal dad-jokes and crafted one-liners.
