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 think its great
27 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

Some put this down as unfunny and even racist. I don't i think its great and shows that people of Islam can have fun as much as anyone else.

You do have to look for the jokes sometimes and the humour can be questionable but it is a lot of fun and thank you BBC that there will be a second series.

This is the sort of comedy that needs to be made,this and Mrs Browns Boys have shown people in a new friendly light and broken down barriers where as they show called Cuckoo doesn't deserve the category "comedy" Those who are offended - get a life and stop being offended on someone else's behalf.
