“Right now, the Iranian Djalili is probably one of the most subversive, let alone funniest, comedians around” (Guardian).
“To carve yourself out a career as the thinking person’s Iranian comedian in this political climate takes a fine brain and a masterful way with the audience. There is no question that Omid Djalili possesses both” (Sunday Times).
