How can you tell if your neighbour is speaking Muslim? Is a mosque a kind of hedgehog? Can I get fries with that burka? You can’t trust the media any longer, but there’s no need to fret: this comedy extravaganza will attempt to answer all your questions.

Join critically acclaimed, prize-winning comedians Omar Hamdi, Esther Manito and Amrou Al-Kadhi for some stand-up comedy and a chance to ask questions of your own. The event will take a lively look at what the arts and comedy can do to combat stereotypes and regressive identity politics.

It will feature outtakes from Don’t Panic I’m Islamic: Words and Pictures on How to Stop Worrying and Learn to Love the Alien Next Door. The book is published by Saqi Books (in partnership with Arts Council England and the Arab British Centre) and is a response to President Trump’s ‘Muslim ban’.
