For the first time ever, Comic Relief will bring together the biggest names in comedy for a special one-off event
American stand-up comic Mo Amer will join British comedian Guz Khan for a joint tour in March and April 2019.
Amer filmed a Netflix special earlier this year, having risen through the ranks supporting the likes of Dave Chapelle, and making his television debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in 2017.
Khan rose to fame following a series of videos uploaded to social media, not least his character Mobeen’s hilarious reaction to a misheard racial slur in the film Jurassic World.
As well as starring on the big screen, Khan created the four part Man Like Mobeen series for the BBC and has appeared on the iconic Live At The Apollo series.
Both Amer and Khan are renowned for their politically charged comedy, offering observations on culture, ethnicity, family, religion and terror.
Amer has previously brought his show to the UK, selling out shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall and the home of comedy, the Eventim Apollo.
Khan recently received the Outstanding Newcomer, Best Male Performance and Best Writer awards from the Royal Television Society for his work on Man Like Mobeen.
The pair’s UK dates kick off at London’s Leicester Square Theatre on the 28 March 2019, running through to Manchester in mid-April.
