After seeing Omid on numerous Royal Variety Shows and brief appearances on other tv shows, a few years ago I booked to see him do standup at one of Manchester's theatre's. The theatre was empty apart from 3-4 rows at the front of the stalls, me being one of the spectators. I wandered why? This man is absolutely hilarious, quick witted and a comedy genius...basically he's a must watch. Maybe the majority of the British public weren't ready for him back then, but they are now, as he's set to take the UK by storm with his new BBC1 comedy series starting on 17th Nov. He's my favourite British Iranian Politically Incorrect Comedian(!) who I think is just great. Infact he's my favourite 'British' comedian full stop. In more recent years he's become ever more popular by having appearances in films such as Gladiator, The Mummy etc., and co-starring with Whoopie Goldberg in her US comedy series 'Whoopie'. He's become very popular worldwide, but especially on the US & Canada comedy circuit, and it seems he's really made his big break over there. I'm sure his new BBC1 series will make him even more popular over here. I can't wait!
This dvd shows one of his most recent tours, and is guaranteed to be one laugh after another. So he'll be pleased to know I've pre-ordered a few, here at Amazon, to give to family/friends for Christmas.
