Omid Djalili

Recommended Posts

why the hell has this thread been moved to Music Discussion?? Omid is a stand up comedian.

FYI:

Omid Djalili is Britain's funniest Iranian stand-up comedian and actor. After great success at the Edinburgh Festival in 1995, Omid has become a Festival Fringe favourite with a string of sell-out shows.

It started in 1995 with 'Short Fat Kebab Shop Owner's Son', then in 1996 in 'Arab & The Jew' on to 1997 with 'Omid Djalili Is Ethnic'. His next show Omid Djalili was so successful he signed a major video deal with VVL. In 2000 he went back to Edinburgh and had another hit show Warm to my Winning Smile and in 2002 with 'Behind Enemy Lines' both of these shows became Edinburgh's hottest ticket. 'Behind Enemy Lines' recieved an astonishing six 5 star reviews. He is one of the funniest, freshest and most original comedians in Britain.

His international appeal is vast, having performed in recent years in Australia, Austria, Germany, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Czech Republic and Slovakia.

At the beginning of 2002 Omid sold-out his debut national tour. Due to this sucess he is touring again in the autumn with his hit show 'Behind Enemy Lines' a show written post September 11th which contains his unique style of furious paced and highly original comedy and belly dancing!

I wondered why it had been moved myself.

I've seen Djalili on a few stand-up shows, he's very hit and miss IMO.

My bad, sorry. Had no idea who he was and my brain connected "at the Music Hall" to mean he must be a musician.

Is he the dude that makes jokes about suicide bombing and stuff related to the war? Has he appeared on Jack Dee at the Apollo?

I'm trying to picture him, not sure if I'm thinking of the right guy though.

might be. phone up the box office. tickets available on the internet have sold out but you can normally still get at the box office.
