THE OMID DJALILI SHOW:
Comedian Omid Djalili – referred to one critic as “one of the most subversive, let alone funniest, comedians around” – is broadening his stand-up persona as a comedic voice of modern, mainstream Britain.
The series sees him covering diverse themes such as the complexities of being British, racism in football and Iranian social etiquette, all with his tongue placed firmly in his cheek.
New characters include Marty, a vicious, camp Sound of Music tour guide who tests his customers on what he’s been saying and a jive-talking Henry VIII struggling with his love life. There’s belly dancing, and musical numbers with high-impact moving and shaking in hilarious skits.
