This special edition of the comedy show is hosted by Arts Canteen and Theatre Deli for Beyond Borders Festival.
Straight from their sold-out shows at the Royal Albert Hall, and before they head to the Dubai Opera House, AANF! are widely regarded as one of the hottest comedy nights among the Arab community and beyond. Comedians with roots in the Arab world attempt to prove the naysayers wrong!
On 21st June, Arabs Are Not Funny! is back with an exciting line-up of comedians, representing the Arab world and surrounding regions showcasing their talents.
Comedy line up includes:
Fatiha El-Ghorri (UK/Morocco)
Underneath her colourful hijab is a mind full of cutting observations and engaging witticism of the life and times of a British Muslim.
Isabelle Farah (UK/Lebanon)
Isabelle is a British-Lebanese actress, comedian and admin monkey, unsure whether she is more at home in both the Lebanese Mountains or the mountains of Muswell Hill. Isabelle has a long history of trying hard but failing miserably at being a serious person, which is why she fell into comedy.
Mo Saffaf (Syria/UK)
Damascus-born, London-bred comedian. Being British-Syrian, his material aims to shine a dark yet charmingly satirical light on the political and cultural arena but also his own shortcomings in life.
Marouen Mraihi (Tunisia/UK)
A versatile comedian and improviser from Tunisia; equally comfortable performing in English, French, Italian and Arabic. Marouen performed regularly for four years in the “London Puma” Italian comedy club and in 2015 co-founded the show “Arabs Are Not Funny!”
Mamoun Elagab (Egypt/Sudan/Sierra Leone)
Mamoun is a new comedian of Sudanese origin. Mamoun is a 2017 Yellow Comedy Young Comedian of the Finalist and won the Manchester King Gong in Jan 2018. Mamoun is also fresh from winning the London King Gong and his recent nomination for BBC New Comedian of the Year
