1.0 out of 5 stars Stage Presence, 7 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Omid Djalili: Live In London [DVD] (DVD)
Having watched this comedian on TV recently, and having heard his radio adverts every day and having owned "No Agenda" dvd i thought i'd give this new dvd a whirl.
Mr Omid Djalill is like Billy Connolly - he has great stage presence; but unlike Billy Connolly Omid is not funny.
He shouts, screams and he even changes his accent and yet he does not help me to enjoy a good old belly laugh.

Both his dvd's contain alot of material related to the middle east and their 'funny' ways. The other sketches are jokes aimed at British culture, and he just repeats that pattern ad nauseum...
Its bizarre. He does not have any funny jokes and yet he sells out venues all over the UK.

I kind of feel the same about Omid as you do; I have watched him and laughed at some of the stuff he did, and at other times I thought he just wasn't that funny at all, even though his act is quite clever and obviously intelligent it just wasn't that funny. I have noticed that there are a number of comedians in Britain, and even in the US, who become very successful and sell out stadiums who I couldn't find really that funny. It can be stage presence I suspect. I like Bill Bailey and Sean Lock, I have belly laughed at their jokes and routines, but perhaps there are people who don't find them funny. I think it does of course merely boil down to personal taste.
