After previous sell out shows around the UK Desi Central comes to The Wardrobe Leeds with an amazing line-up and night of nothing but laughter.
Acts: Mickey Sharma, Omar Hamdi, Sunil Patel, Nabil Abdul Rashid
Mickey Sharma is one of the UKs leading Indian comedians who regularly plays the mainstream comedy circuit.
Mickey is an Indian that was born in Pakistan (its true!!) while his father was working for the Indian Embassy. After living in Pakistan, the family moved to Beijing, then Hong Kong, then back to India before Mickey decided to move to the United Kingdom.
Having endured various jobs like a waiter, shelf stacker, camera assistant and Bouncer, Mickey started comedy and now works as a full time comic and has travelled worldwide.
Omar Hamdi joins the Desi Central line up
Omar Hamdi is a high-energy, affable Welsh-Egyptian comic, Omar makes the personal political and the political personal, with a disarming every-man charm.
‘Just what the comedy scene has been crying out for’ – Daily Telegraph
Omar Hamdi is “just what the comedy scene has been crying out for” – The Daily Telegraph.
Don Biswas – his unique set combines both razor sharp one-liners, personal humour & issues coming from a middle class Indian family.
Nabil Abdul Rashid
Nabil Abdul Rashid is the very long awaited comedic breath of fresh air.
Born in London but raised in Northern Nigeria to a Medical doctor father and a politician/business woman mother he has been fortunate to travel around the world at young age and had a private school education before moving to back to England to live in Croydon south London (or croy croy as he fondly calls it).
Nabil Abdul Rashid switches from surreal to satirical in his dichotomy of being a middle-class educated man yet simultaneously a street-smart urban youth while avoiding clichés when dealing with topics such as being a black Muslim in South London. He switches accent and languages and blends them into his material.
