OMID Djalili might be known to millions for his roles in Hollywood blockbusters and West End appearances, but he started his career as a ‘shmuck’ in fringe theatre. Although he’s swapped dingy pub rooms for the big theatres, he remains and always will be, in his own estimation, the same old schmuck, hence his new tour: Schmuck for a Night. As usual the actor will get political and touch on such heavy subjects as ISIS, Trump and Brexit. But never fear, he has made his name as a buffoon, for a reason – and he knows how to keep it light. Though his dancing days to break the tension or add a little whimsy are well and truly behind him. He just can’t keep it up!

Omid Djalili comes to the Wyvern on Sunday at 8pm. Tickets are £27.50. To book call 01793 524481 or visit
