The Kernow King
AT: Swansea Grand Theatre Arts Wing
ON: Friday, 7.45pm
Cornish comedian the Kernow King brings his new show Splann! to Swansea this Friday.
Familiar to many as KK, the funnyman has built up a legion of online admirers thanks to his popular YouTube videos that take a light-hearted look at what it is to be Cornish.
Having studied at Swansea Institute of Higher Education between 1997 and 2000, Edward Rowe who plays KK is excited about coming back, "There are so many similarities between Wales and Cornwall. As someone who doesn't like leaving home much, it was huge step heading off to uni at 18. But Swansea felt like home from home — the beaches, people, our languages, our identities…I really can't wait to come back to what always felt like my second home".
