This follows his successful spring tour of ‘Omid Djalili Live’ as well as appearances in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington DC last year.

The British-born Iranian comedian will be at The Platform in Morecambe on Friday October 3.

The new show will see him discussing themes of relationships, the perils of celebrity and getting older. He said: “A lot of men in their 40s do things to prove themselves. For me it was a choice of going on tour, learning to ride a unicycle or understanding Judaism!”

“As Dave Allen once said, ‘I enjoy getting older. I have to because there’s no choice’. When you hit your 40s you understand life better, but your body is more prone to fail.

“That’s why I did Splash! I wanted to do something out of the box, stretch my courage and prove I was still a young man at heart even though my bits were dropping off.”
