Never miss another 'Omid Djalili' show
Tour Of Duty: Omid Djalili
Multi Award winning stand-up television and movie star, Omid Djalili is back on tour with his brand new comedy show.
A firm favourite at the Edinburgh Festival with his legendary performances, Omid's stand-up awards include; Time Out Award - for Best Stand Up, the EMMA Award and was South Bank Award nominee as well as being a Perrier Award nominee.
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.'
One of Britain's freshest and most original comics, this British-born Iranian hams the accent and underlines the cliches before pulling the Persian rug from under the audience. With a career in comedy spanning across three decades, Omid Djalili's legendary performances on stage and screen have won him fans and plaudits the world over.
Renowned for his razor sharp wit, boundless energy and expertly crafted cultural observations, his original material continues to explore the diversity of modern Britain and he remains one of the most exciting entertainers on the circuit.
A firm favourite at the Edinburgh Festival, Omid's stand-up awards include the Time Out Award for Best Stand Up and the EMMA Award. He's also been a nominee for a Perrier Award and the South Bank Award. Omid was also awarded a Best Actor award at the Turin Film Festival for his lead performance in The Infidel.
'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... Belly laughs with a subtle blend of mainstream gags and subversive twinkle' (The Sunday Times)
'Right now, the Iranian Djalili is probably one of the most subversive, let alone funniest, comedians around' (The Guardian)
'Iranalamadingdong is a must see for anyone that has a good sense of humour' (Birmingham Mail).
