Omid Djalili comes to Eastleigh this autumn with Namaste show

Omid Djalili, is set to take his brand-new show Namaste on the road this autumn, bringing him to The Point, Eastleigh, for two nights.

Namaste is typically a word associated with peace and tranquillity, but the word – which comes from Sanskrit – literally means “bowing to you”. And as he watches a world on fire, as climate change, terrorism, financial instability, oceanic pollution, and depletion of natural resources tear ever more at the fabric of our lives, Omid has decided he’ll eschew tranquillity, and bow instead to his inner anger.

Namaste sees Omid peacefully and joyfully control that rage and unleash a torrent of comedic vitriol upon the current state of this dangerously messed up planet. No government gets a green card. No tyrant avoids a take down.

A firm favourite at the Edinburgh Festival, Omid’s stand-up awards include the Time Out Award for Best Stand Up. He’s also been both a Perrier Award nominee and a winner of the Edinburgh Award Panel Prize. Omid was also awarded a Best Actor award at the Turin Film Festival for his lead performance in The Infidel. His credits range from Hollywood to television and the West End Stage with critically acclaimed performances as Fagin in Oliver! and Reb Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof.

Most recently, Omid starred in the award-winning movie Journey To Bethlehem as one of the Wise Men and as Bridget Christie’s husband in the highly acclaimed series The Change on Channel 4. He also hosted two series of Winning Combination on ITV1.
