Don’t let the name of this night fool you. Arts Canteen presents a special edition of one of London’s hottest comedy nights as 4 comedians with roots in the Arab world attempt to prove the naysayers wrong!

LINEUP: Hilal Kassem Hilal Kassem, AKA @HILALIOUSCOMEDY, is a comedian from the Lebanese diaspora in Nigeria who came to Europe to study Cultural Psychology. With his sarcastic humor, Hilalious will share with us his intercultural journey tapping upon race, religion, gender, sexuality, and other hot topics!

Farah Sharp Farah is an English-Egyptian comedian based in London. She has performed around the UK as well as in Sydney, Australia. Her stand-up is a mix of quirky opinions and anecdotes, often based around her upbringing or relationships and what she has (or hasn’t!) learnt from them.

Sezar Alkassab Sezar is a Scottish comedian, whose family is from Iraq. His conversational comedy explores his heritage, managing cultural differences, misconceptions, gender politics, and more in a comedy act with silly stories, informed observations and provocative punchlines.

Moundabout - Live Soundtrack

Moundabout - Live Soundtrack

Irish Film London is excited to team up with powerhouse London promoter's Baba Yaga Hut to bring our audience a sensory delight, combining footage from the Northern Ireland Screen Digital Archive with a live soundtrack performance from new Irish folk project Moundabout.

As part of a project which seeks to explore creative repurposing of archive images, IFL found a treasure trove of silent footage which was waiting to be rediscovered & reinterpreted. This ethos also perfectly describes Paddy Shine & Phil Masterson's new folk project Moundabout which blends the line between experimental sound & traditional folk music. By joining forces with this incredible band it gives us a chance to add new meaning to old images, by combining them with exciting & original music
