Arabs Are Not Funny (Edition 12)

Arabs Are Not Funny (Edition 12): After eleven sold-out editions, Arts Canteen’s 'Arabs Are Not Funny' is back with a great line-up of comedians, representing the Arab world and surrounding regions. Performing in English, the main act will be the Somalian born Prince Abdi. A British stand-up, actor, writer and a regular on the UK comedy circuit, Abdi's versatile storytelling style of comedy made him the perfect choice to support Reginald D Hunter, Stephen K Amos and Dave Chappelle on their national tours; and, he has also performed alongside Chris Rock and Louis CK. Also performing as special guests will be Tez Ilyas (a phenomenally successful comedian who has appeared on various TV and radio programmes as well as being an award-winning live stand-up across the UK) and Esther Manito (Funny Women's One to Watch and Leicester Square Comedian Semi-finalist for 2016), with more to be confirmed. Taking place on 28 January, 2017 at Rich Mix, 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA.
