Following four hugely successful series on BBC One, Adil Ray has brought the much loved self-appointed community leader, Mr Khan to the stage.
Citizen Khan visits Manchester’s 02 Apollo on Saturday, May 7, as part of a select tour of UK venues.
Mr Khan, created and performed by Adil, is a larger than life character, with strong opinions and big dreams, facing the challenge of how to make ends meet yet keep his family happy. Things would be much easier if everyone just listened to him and followed his lead, and now he is hoping they finally will.
Citizen Khan, one of the most watched comedy shows on British television, has gained four awards from the Royal Television Society – including Best Performance in a Comedy, awarded to Adil Ray in both 2013 and 2014.
Its success has been attributed to its family audience and its popularity with younger viewers over alternative comedies on TV.
Mr Khan, Community Leader, said: “Asalaam Alaikum and hello how do you do to all you non-Muslim peoples. Mr Khan Community leader speaking.
“I’m very pleased to be able to get the chance to meet you all in my busy schedule.
“I will be informing you all on how to deal with all areas of British life; family, fashion, food, school, and of course being a good Muslim.
“Oh Twaddi! This is a family show so bring everybodies but please, if you are Indian (or ginger) you must sit at the back and don’t drink too much!”
