British Muslim comedian Aatif Nawaz to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe once again

/

“A man with big ambitions – this is brave, important comedy” – Three Weeks

Following on from his all-out assault on Islamophobia in his acclaimed debut hour, Muslims Do It 5 Times A Day, Aatif Nawaz returns with a critical look the skewed way British Muslims are portrayed in the mainstream.

Aatif will be performing his new set ‘Aatificial Intelligence’ from the 4th-28th August in Edinburgh. Entry is FREE and you can find out more here.

In Aatificial Intelligence, Aatif pours satirical sass on frustratingly shallow UK news outlets – with a frank and detailed discussion of his dealings with Channel 4 and The Guardian – and on some of the more irresponsible efforts of the international media too. Along the way, whether it’s politics, sport or buying a house, Aatif tears apart all manner of irritating ignorance and takes the chance to impart some of that eponymous Aatificial Intelligence.

Warning: direct, hard-hitting comedy that will also tickle ribs.

“Determined to debunk a few myths and trouble-shoot some reductive stereotypes” – The List

Aatif Nawaz is an award-winning British-Pakistani television presenter and stand-up comedian. He has also won acclaim for his acting, filmmaking, radio presenting and writing. His work on The Aatif Nawaz Show and Living The Life earned him two nominations for the MOMO (Music of Muslim Orientation) Awards for Best Television Presenter and Best TV Show. As a bilingual actor, Aatif appeared in the Urdu-language series Lehrein, the film Majboor, and also wrote, directed and starred in the Urdu television series Bahir Waalay.

He has had notable roles in in Mark Austin’s Real Crime and Peep Show. In 2014, Aatif performed his debut solo hour of comedy Talk Roti To Me in front of four sell-out crowds at the iconic Leicester Square Theatre in London. Aatif’s follow up show Muslims Do It 5 Times A Day played to 11 sell-out audiences in London’s West End, and to over 1800 people at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. His jokes were featured in the Daily Mirror Top 100 Jokes of Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015.

Aatif will be performing his new set ‘Aatificial Intelligence’ from the 4th-28th August in Edinburgh. Entry is FREE and you can find out more here.
