John Freeman

It might seem some time off, but we expect word that multi award winning stand-up television and movie star Omid Djalili will be warming up for the tour of his brand new comedy show  'Tour of Duty'  at the Platform, Morecambe will see tickets sell fast

A firm favourite at the Edinburgh Festival with his legendary performances, Omid’s stand-up awards include ’Time Out Award’ - for Best Stand Up, the ‘EMMA Award’ and was ‘South Bank Award' nominee as well as being a ‘Perrier Award’ nominee.
Omid, who will be appearing at the Platform on Monday 19th September, was the winner of the "Best Actor" Award for his lead performance in The Infidel at the Turin Film Festiva, a film which also picked up a Loaded LAFTA award for "Funniest film" and Omid was short listed for "Peter Sellers Award" at the London Evening Standard British Film Awards.

With tickets priced at just £14, it’s bound to be a sell out, although please note, the show is for over 16s only.
