Join some of comedy’s finest up and coming and established names at Arabs Are Not Funny – the best in stand-up comedy from the Arab world and surrounding regions.
Taking to the Elgar Room stage tonight are Zahra Barri, Mohamed Omar, Fatiha El-Ghorri, MC Sarah Agha and Marouen Mraihi.
Zahra Barri is a stand up, presenter, actor and writer with a unique Eastern and Kanye Western perspective on all of life’s big questions.
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!”
