Bilal Zafar: Cakes

Saturday 1st Apr 2017, New Greenham Arts

Full Price £13 / Concessions Price £10.50

Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee '16 and New Act of the Year award winner Bilal Zafar brings us his highly anticipated debut show, Cakes.

Join Bilal as he takes you on a fascinating and hilarious journey of how his Twitter handle, @zafarcakes, became a focal point for the misguided rage of the global far right when it was mistaken for the account of a Muslim-only bakery. 

Having provoked the outrage of such defenders of Britishness as Katie Hopkins, EDL supporters and the Daily Star, Cakes shows how Bilal used humour to respond to the prejudice and abuse increasingly faced by British Muslims today.

  • “[he] delivers on the absurdity of an escalating social media farce running in parallel with growing prejudice and tensions, joyously exposing the stupidity on all sides”
    ★★★★ The Skinny
  • “Fascinating and hilarious in equal measure”

Please note: this show has been rescheduled to Saturday 1 April at 8pm.
