We’ve got two chances to see him on dates which have been recently rescheduled. He played the Swansea Grand Theatre last night and St David’s Hall in Cardiff this evening – details at the bottom of the page.
After experimenting with a Zoom gig where he got muted by 639 people and a drive-in gig where Omid witnessed an audience member get out his car, attach a hose pipe to his exhaust and feed it through the window; multi award-winning comedian and actor has more than a few tales to tell as he bring back THE GOOD TIMES.
Intelligent, always provocative, entertaining, Omid’s legendary stand-up performances is a captivating comedy masterclass. His credits range from Hollywood films to television and the West End stage. Earning praise across the world for his performances, Omid is seen hosting his own ITV quiz show The Winning Combination.

Omid also gained rave reviews for his leading role of Tevvye in the Chichester Festival Theatre production of “Fiddler On The Roof”.
Before he makes the journey from Ipswich, we put a Zoom call in to Omid for a chat about the tour, how lockdown affected his live shows, and of course the iconic Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, which Omid was in. It’s that diversity in his career we start with and the fact he goes from stage to TV, the big screen and back to his live shows.
