Never heard of him/her...so can you give us an idea of the sort of humour you are talking about...and I guess the amphitheatre is either at Dubai Media City or in the Madinat Jumeirah complex.

he's great, I like him - but if the rest is anything like the 'minorities rule' thing on showtime then I'd take your ipod and some very strong whisky. It's gash.

When & who else is on the bill? Do you have a link?

Djalili used to be funny, but that speaking in a foreign accent schtick and fat man belly dancing to get a laugh thing has been done to death.

here's the lineup:


April 22nd, 2009
- Rob Magnotti
- Kirk Fox
- Omid Djalili

April 23rd, 2009
- Rob Magnotti
- Whitney Cummings
- Gerry Dee
- Tom Papa

April 24th, 2009
- Rusty Dooley
- Erik Griffin
- Sebastian Maniscalco
- Tommy Davidson

We promise its going to be hysterical. all the comics involved are different to one another and none of them are stereotypical to any culture- so if you've lived in liverpool or lesotho you'll still find them funny.

you can get tickets at virgin megastores or at boxofficeme.com

hope to see you there,

cheers!
