Omar Hamdi: In the Valleys of the Kings
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Brought up by his Egyptian mummy in deepest Wales, Omar's childhood was full of mysteries: How did men ruin everything? What's love? Why's depression such a downer? Almost entirely constituted of energy, enthusiasm and wit, Omar excavates the mummy issues of the lesser-spotted Egyptian-Welshman. Omar is Russell Kane's tour support. Credits include Seann Walsh's Comedy Spectacular and Free Speech (BBC Three), regular Radio 2 appearances, and Philosofa (podcast). 'What the comedy scene has been crying out for' (Daily Telegraph). 'Smashed it like a ceramic plate, every night of the tour' (Russell Kane).
