Iran’s funniest comedian Omid Djalili is back on tour with a new show, following a sell-out four week West-End residency and a sold-out season at the Edinburgh Festival and we got our hands on a set of tickets to give away to one of you!
English comedian songwriter Boothby Graffoe is special guest.
‘Boothby Graffoe is rare among singer-songwriters in that he’s not intensively twee and annoying.’
The Sunday Times
‘Boothby Graffoe really is a master of the comic song, and this new album demonstrates his range, from the plain silly to great stories in song through to numbers that you laugh at with a bit of a lump in your throat.’ The British Theatre Guide
A firm favourite with his legendary performances, Omid Djalili’s stand-up awards include; ’Time Out Award’ and ‘EMMA Award’ for Best Stand Up and nominated for the ‘South Bank Award’.
Omid was the winner of the “Best Actor” Award for his lead performance in ‘The Infidel’ at the Turin Film Festival (won the previous year by Bill Murray ). The Infidel also picked up a Loaded LAFTA award for “Funniest film” and Omid was short listed for “Peter Sellers Award” at the ‘London Evening Standard British Film Awards’.
“Right now, the Iranian Djalili is probably one of the most subversive, let alone funniest, comedians around” (Guardian).
“To carve yourself out a career as the thinking person’s Iranian comedian in this political climate takes a fine brain and a masterful way with the audience. There is no question that Omid Djalili possesses both” (Sunday Times).
