Default Citizen Khan

Comedy show about Muslims......that was never going to offend anyone!

A show made by UK Muslims, about UK Muslims, offends 0.00514% of the audience into complaining, in itself not really news is it?

Hopefully will act as an insight at some level and may open up more of the UK Muslim culture, and as its comedy this may draw more people in and educate them unwittingly. Might hunt it down on iPlayer for a look...

I used to live in Brum when I was a student and know the Sparkhill area - thought it was funny and intend watching the series. I liked the plastic covers on the sofa!

No it was absolutely crap - not funny at all.
Wife from Brum and same culture - she also thought it was crap. Interestingly she was not in any way offended.

Watched it last night with the Good Lady (Muslim) She found the seats, The youngest daughter and the way he spoke to the Mosque manager funny....

Again, she was not offended and is probably more inclined than I am to try it again next week.

A great programme - a highlight in the schedules. Mr Khan is a caricature, but is not Del Boy? or Basil Fawlty?

Incidentially it's easy to dismiss programmes and say it it was 'OK' or 'average' but try writing something like this yourself...

I have seen everyone now and its pretty much the only thing I watch on BBC Iplayer. Though not hilarious it is good watching and funny in parts. I love the way he treats and talks to Dave

Remember seeing some of his cricket snippets a couple of years ago before the series was commissioned and thought they were good.
