Off the back of 47 sold-out previous editions, Arts Canteen’s Arabs Are Not Funny returns with a line-up of top comedians showcasing the comic talents of the Arab world and surrounding regions.

Ahmed Ibrahim

King Kong winner October 2021, Ahmed is another of South London’s brightest lights, appearing at Up The Creek and many other top comedy clubs. His natural, relaxed style is charming and endearing.

Prince Abdi

Prince Abdi is an internationally renowned comedian, who has appeared on TV screens across the globe. A British-Somali Muslim who lives in London, Prince has built up a solid reputation as one of the circuit's defining voices.

His career has seen him provide tour support to iconic names like Trevor Noah, Dave Chapelle, Chris Rock & Jack Whitehall. As well as performing at festivals such as The Edinburgh Fringe & Cape Town Comedy Festival.

Talal Karkouti

British-born, Syrian-bred Talal Karkouti brings stand-up and music together in a gloriously furious and raucous way. With songs about everything from love to the love of hummus - as well as some improvised magic too.

Fathiya Saleh

Youth worker by day and comedian by night, North West London comic Fathiya, with Somali-Yemeni roots, shares the funny mishaps of what it’s like being Muslim and living in a Somali household. Fathiya recently appeared on the BBC Asian Network comedy special.

'Comedians with roots in the Arab world attempt to prove the naysayers wrong!'
