Comedian Omid Djalili will be making two live appearances in Hertfordshire next month.

Omid Djalili made a huge splash on Tom Daley’s celebrity diving show Splash! last year.

And the British-born Iranian comedian will be hoping to make a similar impression when he hits the road with his latest tour, which visits both Potters Bar and Hertford next month.

Having appeared on cinema screens in Sex and the City 2, the subversive stand-up will be appearing at Hertford Theatre on Sunday, February 2 and then at Potters Bar’s Wyllyotts Theatre 11 days later on Thursday, February 13.

These two shows form part of the final string of extra UK dates of Omid Djalili Live, following on from a sold-out season in London’s West End last year and a sell-out Edinburgh Festival run, not to mention performing the show for the first time in New York, LA and Washington DC.

Last year Omid also starred in a new stage play of The Shawshank Redemption at the Edinburgh Festival daily throughout August.

He took on the role of Red, the character played by Morgan Freeman in the 1994 film version, to critical acclaim.

The Times described Omid’s role as a “solid nuanced performance, creates a full hearted character to stand alongside any”.

A firm favourite at the Edinburgh Festival, the Iranian comic and actor’s performances on stage and screen have won him plaudits the world over.

His credits include playing Fagin in West End smash Oliver!, Dr Rance in Joe Orton’s What The Butler Saw at The Vaudeville Theatre and Mahmud Nasir in The Infidel.
