OMID DJALILI THE GOOD TIMES TOUR

AFTER EXPERIMENTING with a Zoom gig where he got muted by 639 people and a Drive-in gig where Omid witnessed an audience member get out his car, attach a hose pipe to his exhaust and feed it through the window; multi award-winning comedian and actor Omid Djalili is now·where he belongs, on a stage and bringing back the Good Times.

Intelligent, always provocative, entertaining, Omid’s legendary stand-up performances is a captivating comedy masterclass. His credits range from Hollywood films to television and the West End stage. Earning praise across the world for his performances, Omid is seen hosting his own ITV quiz show The Winning Combination. He appeared in the smash hit Mama Mia 2: Here We Go Again, His Dark Materials for BBC1 & HBO, and Letter For The King on Netflix. Omid also gained rave reviews for his leading role of Tevvye in the Chichester Festival Theatre production of “Fiddler On The Roof”.

“So hysterically funny and at the same time so poignant and powerful that calling it stand-up barely does it justice.” - Michael Levin, Huffington Post

“A thin, high cheek-boned, flamboyant luvvie.” - The Guardian

OMID DJALILI A STRANGE BIT OF

Soho Theatre
Mon 17 – Sat 22 Feb 2020. 4.00pm, 7.15pm

OMID RETURNS to one of his earliest stage creations, an enthralling and hilarious storytelling piece recounting mystical experiences, astonishing claims, adventures and tragedies set against the backdrop of tumultuous expectation for a Promised One in Persia, 1844.

Omid portrays a rich diversity of tragic and comic characters in this revival to mark the bicentenary of the birth of the Prophet Founder of the Baha’i Faith.

A Strange Bit of History was first performed at the 1993 Edinburgh Festival, where it won the Spirit of the Fringe Award. Over the next four years it was performed 109 times in 12 different countries.

FUNNY… AND EXTREMELY MOVING.’

OMID RELEASES IRANALAMADINGDONG

This 2015 stand up show is an exclusive digital download for his fans, with all donations to be made to the Bobby Moore Fund!

OMID IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE the release of his acclaimed 2015 stand-up show ‘Iranalamadingdong’ as a digital download. Fans will be able to download & watch the previously unreleased footage by signing up to Omid’s mailing list below, whilst being encouraged to make a donation to the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK, to help beat bowel cancer sooner.

‘Iranalamadingdong’ saw Omid travel the world in 2014/2015, discussing themes including relationships, the perils of celebrity and getting older.

On the release of the footage, Omid said: “I am very happy to be releasing Iranalamadingdong as a digital download as a thank you to people who have followed me over the years. Once downloaded, I encourage you to follow the link and make a donation straight to the Bobby Moore Fund, an excellent cause I’ve been privileged to work with many times in the past. The fund raises money for life-saving research into bowel cancer and increases public awareness of the disease.”

Following the digital download release of ‘Iranalamadingdong’, Omid will be releasing ‘Schmuck for a Night’ as a digital download next year, having filmed the show at his performance at London’s Eventim Apollo in May 2017.

Jewishness to be convincing, it needs to be played by a Jew...'

DISCOVER THE STORY OF THE

 

A work of beautiful rage…provokes anger and goosebumps Empire

NOW AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL DOWNLOAD

ON FEBRUARY 15th, 2003, up to 30 million people worldwide gathered in nearly 800 cities around the world to protest against the impending Iraq War. The New York Times called it the “Second Superpower”, and it remains the largest recorded mass protest in our history.

How did this day come about? Who organized it? And, in the end, despite the rallying of immense numbers around the world, was it ‘a total failure’ as many critics suggested?

Amir Amirani’s startling and fearless documentary WE ARE MANY tells the remarkable story from behind the scenes with powerful testimony from protestors including actors Mark Rylance and Danny Glover, Professor Noam Chomsky, Leader of the Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Richard Branson, Colin Powell’s former Chief of Staff Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, Vietnam Veteran and author of Born on the 4th of July Ron Kovic and musicians Brian Eno and Damon Albarn, as well as members of the public who took to the streets.

Executive produced by award-winning actor and comedian Omid Djalili, BAFTA nominated producer Pippa Harris and Academy Award® nominated producer Signe Byrge Sørensen, WE ARE MANY will be released in the immediate aftermath of the publication of Sir John Chilcot’s Iraq Inquiry, the much-anticipated report into the lead up to the Iraq War in 2003.

Amidst ongoing debate and lengthy Government documents, the compelling and comprehensive WE ARE MANY offers a timeless account of the largest demonstration of people power in human history – available on digital download and on DVD.
