Old material old. New material weak. Poor start.
19 November 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I first saw Omid at the Comedy Store about 4 years ago (well, I had already seen him in Gladiator and The Mummy but you know what I mean). I found his Middle Eastern character hilarious and was convinced that was just the way he was so I was genuinely shocked when he revealed himself to be a very well-spoken Anglo-Iranian. I thought it was all perfect comedy. That time. Surely the ranks of people who haven't seen this gag repeated on numerous occasions must be thinning out. Maybe this was by way of initiation to a new audience and he will introduce new stand-up material as the series goes on. We'll see. More wit and less self-deprecation might be a start.

As for the remainder of the show it consisted of low grade sketches. A predictably overweight and inept survivalist and a gay personal stylist for Osama are the only ones I can remember now. Alright, the Osama one made me laugh a bit.
