Rapper turned comedian Doc Brown takes to the stage of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon on Sunday 9th November. With his tongue in cheek take on hip-hop culture, Doc will delight audiences with his perfectly crafted songs and stories.
The brother of acclaimed writer Zadie Smith, Doc is well on his way to becoming a big name in comedy. He is a regular on the London comedy circuit and has appeared in the BBC's Russell Howard's Good News and Rev, Channel 4's The Inbetweeners and Derek, and ITV's Law and Order. Doc also created, writes and appears in the BAFTA winning Four O'Clock Club on CBBC.
Along with Ricky Gervais, Doc co-wrote and performed Equality Street for Comic Relief 2013, and appeared at Wembley Arena, alongside the likes of Russell Brand and Eddie Izzard as part of Give It Up…For Comic Relief.
“If Brown keeps mining this rich seam of hip-hop comedy, his fame should look after itself.” The Guardian
“Sharp punchlines, imaginative devices and knows more than a thing or two about timing.” Metro
“A seamless mix of truly inspired hip-hop and stand-up. He's a total star… an utter joy” Time Out
The evening will be compered by Russell Kane with support from Tiff Stevenson.
