Mo Amer and Guz Khan team up for a joint stand-up tour

Split work-in-progress bill for US and UK comedy talents

What the comedy world needs less of right now are middle-class white men whining about their tough lives. Mo Amer and Guz Khan, then, are a refreshing pair on the live touring circuit, what with the former being a Kuwait-born American stand-up of much note, while the latter came straight out of Coventry to create the hit BBC Three show Man Like Mobeen. He's also part of new Netflix show Turn Up Charlie alongside Idris Elba, and will soon be in the updated 12-part (on Hulu) remake of Four Weddings and a Funeral, as dreamed up by Mindy Kaling.

A busy boy then, for sure, but all his attention for now is concentrated on the touring show with Amer which will reach Glasgow, with the duo spitting the bill with a work-in-progress stand-up set each. It might seem like an odd coupling for a full tour show, but Amer has dubbed Khan as 'the Pakistani version of me'.

There will be no shortage of relevant subject matter for them to get their teeth into, with Amer no doubt taking special aim at his current president while Khan might dip a satirical toe or two into the ever-chaotic world of Brexit Britain.

I have attended previous shows including Guz and Mo and would highly recommend both. More material from both would be good to watch as at previous events the available time was shared with other artists too. Just need to prepare myself for constant non stop laughing which is expected from a show by the duo!
