Series 8 - 5. Julian Clary, Omid Djalili and Reginald D Hunter

Jane Rackham

Omid Djalili hosts tonight’s comedy session, treading what he calls “the fine line between entertaining and mental illness”. On the entertainment side of that line are his impressive mashup of West End musicals and his Tommy Cooper pastiche of Obama meeting former Egyptian president Mubarak.

He’s followed by Reginald D Hunter with some political comedy and then Julian Clary, who does a startlingly short set — though perhaps not short enough for Olympic cycling champion Geraint Thomas, who looks very uneasy when called up on stage.

About this programme

5/6. Host Omid Djalili warms up the audience before camp comic Julian Clary and Alabama's finest Reginald D Hunter take the mic at the Hammersmith Apollo in London.
