Never miss another 'Imran Yusuf' show
Comedy Night: Imran Yusuf, Tom Deacon, Toju
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Comedian who was a 2008 Hackney Empire finalist renowned for his super-high energy performance. Imran has a unique voice stamping his mark for positive, uplifting comedy at every turn.
Born in Mombasa, Kenya and raised in the UK with a brief stint at school in the USA, Imran has also travelled much of the world including Israel/Palestine, Jordan and Saudi Arabia during the Lebanon Crisis in 2006. His work has been inspired by this rich multicultural background, giving him a youthful, energetic and highly original voice that embodies the multi-cultural wealth that exists in modern Britain.
He seamlessly switches between styles with graceful fluidity, repeatedly delivering heavy-weight punch lines with enormous panache. His seemingly light-hearted satire is mixed with hard-hitting topical commentary on contemporary issues that culminate into a tour de force of comedy offering an all-embracing sentiment in his trademark styling
'Imran Yusuf's show heralds the birth of a new comedy star. Intelligent, thought-provoking and laugh out loud funny, it's a glorious debut' (Time Out).
Imran Yusuf tour dates
The charismatic star of Radio One Sunday nights is fast becoming one of the hottest tickets in UK stand-up. Winner of the 2007 Chortle Student Comedian of the Year, Tom made his Edinburgh Festival solo debut in 2009 and can be seen daily on BBC Switch's 5.19 show.
'Slick stagecraft, bags of energy' (Chortle)
'A mighty fine comic' (The Guardian)
'With looks, confidence, charm and great material, expect other comedians to
lynch him' (The Sunday Times).
Tom Deacon tour dates
The Jimi Hendrix of comedy, Toju has been on the comedy circuit for 17 years. His TV credits include 'The Real McCoy', Channels 4's 'Balls Of Steel', 'The A'Force', 'Get Up, Stand Up' as well as many others. He is one of the most invigorating young stand-ups to emerge from the new generation of black British comedy. While his targets include the empty commercialism of modern culture, he uses a wide variety of mainstream references to make his points: Brit gangster films, martial arts movies, the Incredible Hulk. His influences range from Dennis Leary and Bill Hicks to sitcoms like Rising Damp. Although often angry, he is also gloriously inclusive.
