Omid Djalili - Namaste

The Persian Comedy Powerhouse performs his critically acclaimed new show.

Omid peacefully bows to his inner anger and unleashes a torrent of comedic vitriol upon the current state of this dangerously messed up planet.

No government gets a green card. No tyrant avoids a take down. No audience member leaves the theatre with an ounce of laughter left in them.

You have been warned.

'So hysterically funny and at the same time so poignant and powerful that calling it stand-up barely does it justice' Michael Levin, Huffington Post

With support from Boothby Graffoe.

Suitable for ages 16+ years.

Courtyard Theatre
