Comedy preview: Omid Djalili @ King's Theatre, Glasgow

Published by METRO

Thank goodness this guy doesn’t need an introduction – because I really don’t have much room to write one.

What, with the second series of The Omid Djalili Show, his work for the moneysupermarket.com adverts and a starring role in Brit flick The Infidel, this larger-than-life comedian has a more-than-adequate public profile. Surprisingly though, it’s been almost four years since his last stand-up gig.

Thankfully, he’s hopped right back on the circuit with his new show Tour of Duty as if it were a bike. Djalili is back to his best, offering an amusing perspective on the Arab Spring, terrorism and other topics through impersonations, sketches and observations – not to mention belly dancing – encompassed by his good-natured brand of humour.

I’m struggling to think of funnier comedians who thrive as much on the big stage as this comic does. Love or loathe this confident yet loveable showman, he’ll endeavour to warm every inch of King’s Theatre with laughter this Sunday.
