In the Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards 2019, the campaign’s flagship video – starring Andy – won a Silver award in the Social Media & Short Videos category. It also won Gold for Best Film in a Digital Campaign at the EVCOM awards, and has had over six million views thus far.

Since being a writer on the legendary Spitting Image, Andy won the Time Out Comedy Award in 2002 and has performed stand-up all over the world.

To date he has done five sell-out national tours and released the DVDs Britain’s Got Idiots, Gruntled, Slacktivist and Live & Unleashed – But Naturally Cautious. He was also responsible for the Slacktivist Action Group podcast, which played host to a wide range of MPs, journalists and comedians.

Parsons said: “I was in the middle of a UK Tour when theatres had to close due to lockdown – and the tour was called Healing The Nation – so that title worked out well. It will turn out to be the longest tour ever, taking three years to complete, and as the tour has gone on there’s been less and less healing and more and more of the opposite.”
