The Super Muslim Comedy Tour is back for 2016 and is bringing even more world-famous Muslim comedians for a UK wide tour. After the resounding success of the first ever tour in 2015, this year is bringing a league of renowned Muslim comedians to 13 cities this October, and with a new line-up and new material, it is on track to be extremely popular.
The tour is presented by Penny Appeal, an international humanitarian charity, and all money raised will support orphans and children living in deprived and often dangerous environments. Working in countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh and Lebanon, the tour will support the set-up of rescue centres, which will give children a safe haven and a place for education, training and support.
The variety of performers on this tour is guaranteed to entertain the masses, with prominent names in comedy coming from as far as the USA and Australia, as well as some of Britain’s funniest Muslims. Hollywood actor and director Omar Regan will be appearing with the likes of internationally successful comedians Azhar Usman and Abdullah Afzal of the BBC’s ‘Citizen Khan’ fame.
Omar Regan, Hollywood comedian, tells us, “The tour comes at a great time for the UK – with Islamophobia on the rise it’s nice to be part of a positive message. Penny Appeal also does some incredible work and it’s amazing to think we can have fun together and be there for children who need our help.”
Penny Appeal CEO, Aamer Naeem, adds, “This year is anticipated to be even bigger than last year, with new cities and new comedians added to the mix. It will be a unique opportunity for families and communities to gather together and have a hilarious evening whilst helping launch a new campaign to help forgotten children who desperately need interventions.
“The support we have received from the general public and all the artists involved has been overwhelming. Tickets have only recently gone on sale and some venues are already 50% sold out! It’s sure to be the highlight of the year.”
Running from the 18th to 30th October, the tour will be going to Slough, North London, Bolton, Nottingham, Birmingham, East London, Coventry, Blackburn, Leicester, Sheffield, Bradford, Newcastle and Manchester.
Early Bird tickets are available at just £5 each until the 7th of September, when they will return to the standard price of £10 each. Premium seating close to the stage is also available for £20 per ticket.
