Never miss another 'Omid Djalili' show
Iranalamadingdong: Omid Djalili
He's 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.
A firm favourite with his legendary performances, Omid'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.
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)
Omid Djalili was named in Ents24's top 10 hardest-working comedians 2017.
