Award winning comedian and actor OMID DJALILI has announced a huge 108-date 2016 & 2017 UK tour of his brand new show SCHMUCK FOR A NIGHT. Included in this extensive run are three nights in London, including a previously-announced performance at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire, and two new shows, at the Cadogan Hall on Friday 3rd February 2017 and a tour-finishing date at the Hammersmith Apollo on Saturday 20th May 2017.
Of trying to make sense of the world around him in Schmuck For A Night, Omid said, “It’ll be so current sometimes audiences won’t laugh until they get home and turn on the TV.”
As a stand-up and acclaimed actor, Omid’s credits range from Hollywood movies and television to live productions on the West End stage. He has appeared on UK and US TV, and starred in films such as the recently Golden Globe and Oscar nominated Shaun the Sheep Movie, Mr Nice, Gladiator, Sex And The City 2, The Mummy and The Infidel. Omid has also just been cast in Disney’s new live-action production of The Nutcracker, which he will be filming alongside the tour.
On TV recently, Omid has been seen in the BBC Four series Going Forward with Jo Brand, as well as making appearances in Dickensian for BBC1 and Stan Lee’s Lucky Man for SKY1.
Omid has also executively produced the acclaimed documentary We Are Many, about the global anti-war demonstrations that took place in 800 cities on February 15th 2003, to date the largest mobilisation of human beings in the history of the earth.
This August Omid produced an Edinburgh Fringe show called Iraq Out & Loud, which saw almost 1500 comedians and members of the public read the entirety of the Chilcot Report for 24 hours a day, over 12 days. This memorable production was awarded the prestigious Panel Prize at Edinburgh Comedy Awards, and later TV Bomb’s Zeitgeist Award.
