Description

Don't Panic, I'm Islamic

How can you tell if your neighbour is speaking Muslim? Is a mosque a kind of hedgehog? Can I get fries with that burka? You can’t trust the media any longer, but there’s no need to fret: this comedy extravaganza will attempt to answer all your questions.
Join critically acclaimed, prize-winning comedians Omar Hamdi, Esther Manito and Amrou Al-Kadhi for some stand-up comedy. All included in Don’t Panic, I’m Islamic, which was published by Saqi Books this summer in response to Trump’s ‘Muslim ban,’ they will later be joined by journalist, author and broadcaster Bidisha for a lively look at what the arts and comedy can do to combat stereotypes and regressive identity politics.
Copies of 'Don’t Panic I’m Islamic: Words and Pictures on How to Stop Worrying and Learn to Love the Alien Next Door', published by Saqi Books in partnership with Arts Council England and the Arab British Centre, will be available to purchase on the night.’
