Autumn Theatre Season 2019
World premieres, Edinburgh transfers and returning Soho favourites - a new season of surprise and subversion.
Eshaan Akbar brings his critically-acclaimed Edinburgh show, 'Prophet Like It's Hot', to Soho.
Prophet Like it’s Hot explores his – and society’s – relationship with faith. Armed with a copy of the Qur’an in his hand, Akbar addresses some of the myths about Islam, acknowledges that some of it doesn’t make sense, but says that faith still has a place in modern society. It’s a much funnier book than people give it credit for Akbar finds the funnies without the fatwa.
Eshaan has appeared on BBC2’s Big Asian Stand Up Show, Comedy Central, BBC Asian Network, BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, BBC Radio 5 Live, and TalkSPORT.
'A comedic godsend.'
'The hour never dips and the end comes all too quickly.'
'Prophet Like It's Hot is slick, entertaining, and downright hilarious.'
