Imran Yusef - Headliner
Imran Yusuf is renowned for his stinging, lyrical street-slang verbiage and super-high energy performance. Fast and furious yet charmingly endearing, his is a unique voice in the comedy world.
He seamlessly switches between styles with graceful fluidity, repeatedly delivering heavy-weight punch lines with enormous panache. His seemingly light-hearted satire is mixed with hard-hitting topical commentary on contemporary issues that culminate into a tour de force of comedy offering an all-embracing sentiment in his trademark styling.
“Imran Yusuf’s show heralds the birth of a new comedy star. Intelligent, thought-provoking and laugh out loud funny it’s a glorious debut.” Time Out
