Celebrated comedian and actor Omid Djalili will take to the stage at Durham’s Gala Theatre for one night only next month as he tours the country with his brand new show.

On Friday October 14, the well-known stand-up comic will perform new show, 'Schmuck For A Night,' in Durham as part of his 108-date UK tour.

Djalili, who has a string of Hollywood movie credits to his name - including the Golden Globe and Oscar nominated Shaun the Sheep Movie- has also performed in musicals on the West End.

Alongside the tour, he will be filming Disney’s new live-action production of The Nutcracker, in which he stars.

Also a regular face on TV, he has appeared on UK and US shows, including the BBC Four series Going Forward with Jo Brand, as well as Dickensian for BBC1 and Stan Lee’s Lucky Man for SKY1.

A talented performer, Djalili has produced documentary 'We Are Many,' about the global anti-war demonstrations that took place in 800 cities on February 15 2003, to date the largest mobilisation of human beings in the history of the earth.

This August, Djalili produced an Edinburgh Fringe show called 'Iraq Out & Loud,' which saw almost 1,500 comedians and members of the public read the entirety of the Chilcot Report for 24 hours a day, over 12 days.

This memorable production was awarded the prestigious Panel Prize at Edinburgh Comedy Awards, and later TV Bomb’s Zeitgeist Award.

Tickets to see this hilarious household name, are priced at £24 and are available at the Gala Theatre Box Office on 03000 266 600, by visiting the venue in person or booking online at www.galadurham.co.uk
