Sitcom following the trials and tribulations of self-appointed Muslim community leader Mr. Khan and his long suffering family. Khan is a larger-than-life character, a small man with big dreams and strident opinions. Like many of us he's struggling to make ends meet - but he's proud of his thriftiness - witness his 1979 suit and ancient yellow Mercedes. Things would be so much easier if everyone just listened to him and followed his lead, but his obsessively house-proud wife and two feisty daughters have other ideas.

Did You Know?


Although the show is set in Sparkhill, Birmingham, there are no longer any suitable TV studios in Birmingham, (since the closure of BBC Pebble Mill in 2004,) so the show is recorded at the BBC's new Media City studios in Salford, Greater Manchester. However, creator and star Adil Ray insists that some location filming is done in Birmingham for each series. See more »

I love Citizen Khan - yes, OK, it's not a very original comedy format, and uses some predictable ways to make you laugh, but it's funny, and it's very silly, and that's why I like it. You can't slag it off for being offensive because it's written and acted by people who know what they're talking about so get off that high horse. I love it because it's set in Birmingham and there are never enough realistic portrayals of Birmingham on TV! Mr Khan is a very silly character but it pokes fun at him in the most gentle and inoffensive ways. The characters are fun and the plots are very silly but it is good for a laugh and it is good to see Muslim characters portrayed in comedy without simply being laughed at for their religion or something - it is good to have more exposure of different cultures and people on TV, and this adds to that, I think, in a positive way.
