Went to see Omid Djalili at the Liverpool Philarmonic tonight with Kim of the Split Writing Personalities and DarkDwarf. I liked the TV show but it didn’t seem as funny as some of the appearances I’d seen on post water shed TV. The live gig was funnier than the TV show.
The Boothby Graffoe, the opening support act, had a good 20 minute stint that got everyone in the right frame of mind. Then after a slightly interval (20 minutes) Omid made his appearance and kept us laughing pretty much continuously for the next hour and a half. He finished it all off with his trademark dancing as an en core. Well worth seeing live.
