Omid Djalili @omid9
Jo interviews award winning comedian, Omid Djalili ahead of his Fairfield Hall's "Iranalamadindong" tour showing at the Fairfield Halls on 11th October. The show takes inspiration from many themes found in his "Hopeful" memoir. His tour follows 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 a Time Out and EMMA award for Best Stand Up and nomination for the South Bank Award.
Omid was the winner of the Best Actor Award for his lead performance in The Infidel. A film which also picked up a Loaded LAFTA award for Funniest Film and he was short listed for the Peter Sellers Award at the London Evening Standard British Film Awards.
The Guardian called him one of the funniest and most subversive comedians around right now.
