    Taking to the Elgar Room stage tonight are Zahra Barri, Mohamed Omar, Fatiha El-Ghorri, MC Sarah Agha and Marouen Mraihi.

    A runner up as Last Minute Comedian of the Year and a semi-finalist at the BBC New Comedy Awards, Zahra has been described by Channel 5’s Alan Nixon as ‘a cool Rita Rudner’.


    Mohamed Omar is a Somali-born, Cardiff-raised and London based comic, so brings in his third culture kid way of thinking.

    Mohamed is the Amused Moose Semi-Finalist, SYTYF and finalist in Leicester Square 2017 and having beat the Blackout at Up the Creek and The King Gong.


    Underneath Fatiha El-Ghorri’s hijab is a mind full of cutting observations and engaging witticisms of the life and times of a British Muslim.


    MC Sarah Agha is a half-Palestinian, half-Irish actress from London making another foray into comedy! She is a member of the comedy group SYC at the Soho Theatre and a semi-finalist in Dublin’s Craic Attack competition.


    Marouen Mraihi is a versatile comedian and improviser from Tunisia; equally comfortable performing in English, French, Italian and Arabic.

    Marouen performed regularly for four years in the “London Puma” Italian comedy club and in 2015 co-founded “Arabs Are Not Funny!”
