Nabil’s show explores the idea of trying to be a good person in the modern world. He pokes fun at life’s complexities and contradictions. During the show, he makes fun of patriarchal Nigerian culture. Plus, there are lots of funny lines – “I like white culture, I’m a big fan of Lenny Henry”.

After completing a degree in Drama and Theatre, he began working as a stand-up comedian. At 25 years old, he became the youngest black comedian to perform at Hammersmith Apollo.
