Omid Djalili in Dubai

British comedian performs at Madinat Jumeirah

London-born comedian Omid Djalili comes to Dubai on the back of his star turn in The Infidel, just one film in his surprisingly rich resume – Omid starred in Oscar-winning Gladiator, as well as Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End and, most recently, Mr Nice. But he’s best known for his razor-sharp, culturally aware stand-up performances, for which he’s scooped a number of accolades, most notably a Time Out London comedy award.When we spoke to Omid last week, he said he believed his unique brand of humour provides a bridge between East and West – a point that makes his trip to Dubai all the more relevant.

Omid Djalili performs at Madinat Jumeirah on May 6.
