Teaching and podcasting sensations the Two Mr Ps have announced they’ll be taking their award-winning podcast on a new string of 40 live dates across the UK next year.

Playing across the country from February, brothers Lee and Adam Parkinson will delight audiences with hilarious stories from their experiences of teaching on the front line in the nation’s primary schools, reminisce on their own childhood school days and celebrate the never-dull world of education.

They'll be at Bath Komedia on April 13, Swindon Arts Centre on May 21 and Cheese and Gran in Frome on May 29.

Lee Parkinson has been a primary school teacher for 14 years. Still working part-time in school and leading training sessions across the UK, he has since become one of the most followed teachers on social media in the UK, sharing both ideas and his hilarious insights into life as a class teacher.

Three years ago, he and his younger brother Adam, who also works in a primary school as a teaching assistant started their hit podcast - Two Mr Ps in a Podcast. Within a year, it was the number one education podcast, had amassed over 4m episode listens and won the Listeners’ Choice Award at the Podcast for Business Awards 2021.

In the weekly episodes, the Two Mr Ps share all of the uproarious ins and outs of life in a modern day classroom, awkward parents’ evenings, funny smells and spelling list blunders, whilst reading out cringe-inducing classroom confessions sent in by fellow teachers and interviewing celebrity guests (most recently Tom Fletcher).

Lee said: “Two Mr Ps in a Podcast has been a joy to make. It’s an educational podcast where you don’t really learn anything! We love focusing on the weird and wonderful world of primary school life and I think everyone, not just teachers, will be able to relate to the universal experiences we’re going to have fun dissecting on this tour – after all, everyone went to school! We’re on a mission to prove that teachers are actually human and have a wicked sense of humour.”

Adam said: “We came up with the idea three years ago on a family holiday to Florida while we were sharing funny stories from school. Three years later we’ve had over four million listens and have performed sold-out live shows – it’s been amazing and I can’t wait to get back on the road with these new dates in 2022!”
