Tonight’s frolic down celebrity lane features the stand-up career born of a terrible one-man show about Al Pacino. Omid Djalili recalls how a tobacconist changed his life, and how he literally fell into comedy. Former EastEnder Ashley Kumar plays the 22-year-old Djalili as an aspiring actor trying to break out of overearnest-theatre-group hell. Fun and sweet-natured if sprinkled with cringe.


Light-hearted short set in 1988, telling the story of how Omid Djalili's dreams of Hollywood stardom were interrupted when he accidentally fell into comedy. Ashley Kumar stars as the 22-year-old future funnyman, with Beattie Edmondson, Tim Downie and Djalili himself.
