Critical acclaim for Djalili who like Chappelle fuses multiculturalism with pop culture and a little bit of footy for a laugh-packed show
The Omid Djalili Show I can only say is probably one of the funniest shows i've seen yet, and unlike the other reviewer despite having seen his stand-up before the sketch series', i can only say his creativity and hilarity factor has risen dramatically in the second series.
Omid takes multiculturalism and uses bizarre yet hilarious situations or characters and makes truly outrageous skits which tickle the funny bone for more reasons than slapstick. His use of music, dancing, as well as great one on one banter and impeccable joke telling as well as accents brings this show to one of my all time favorites in sketch comedy. While shows like Mind of Mencia waste our time with poorly crafted ethnic jokes and some awful dane-cook-wannabe presentation, the Omid Djalili show takes some elegant acting with the heart and spirit of true comedy which not only makes you laugh your pants off, but actually think. His observations and accents give the west London/east London feel and often bring to his audience a view of the middle east coupled with immigration in England, English mannerisms, Football frenzy and a great deal of energy, enthusiasm and passion.
The Omid Djalili Show caters to all audiences. For the adults who are too serious, he breaks down the barriers of often limiting political correctivity and gives the world a dose of the truth, from his sketch on British recycling (which is a short non-stop truth comedy sketch) to his stand up with the audience.
For those immature, he has steven 'the dragon' thompson and a "flamboyant" movie director, and for the rest he has some good sports humor, a little bit of belly dancing and some funny accent humor which is too funny and far too accurate to be offensive.
As such, this show is the new breed of sketch comedy, bringing in a little bit of everything to entertain both the heart and the mind. For those who complain of the lack of quality comedy in the world today, the omid djalili show is the true heir of the chappelle show, with a twist of brit wit and maturity.
