In conversation with Russian-British comedian, podcaster, writer and social commentator Konstantin Kisin.

For all the West’s failings – terrible food, cold weather, and questionable politicians with funny hair to name a few – it has its upsides. Konstantin would know. Growing up in the Soviet Union, he experienced first-hand the horrors of a socialist paradise gone wrong, having lived in extreme poverty with little access to even the most basic of necessities. It wasn’t until he moved to the UK that Kisin found himself thriving in an open and tolerant society, receiving countless opportunities he would never have had otherwise.

Funny, provocative and unswervingly perceptive, his Sunday Times bestseller ‘An Immigrant’s Love letter to the West’ interrogates the developing sense of self-loathing the Western sphere has adopted and offers an alternative perspective. Kisin argues that wrongdoing and guilt need not pervade how we feel about the West – and Britain – today, and that despite all its ups and downs, it remains one of the best places to live in the world.

After all, if an immigrant can’t publicly profess their appreciation for this country, who can?
