Arabs Are Not Funny – Liverpool Arab Arts Festival

8 July '23 at 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm

You might have thought that Arabs couldn’t get any funnier. Think again. The funniest Arab comedians in London are coming to Liverpool, in the flesh, funnier than ever before at the Royal Court Studio.

This special edition of Arabs Are Not Funny is performed by four Arab comedians as part of Liverpool Arab Arts Festival 2023.


Esther Manito

A Lebanese-British stand-up comedian and winner of Best Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival. After reaching the finals of So You Think You’re Funny and the Funny Women awards, her debut solo show led to an appearance on Live at the Apollo (BBC Two).

Fatiha El-Ghorri

A British-Moroccan writer, actor and regular on the UK comedy circuit. Her observational stand-up and wonderful witticism take you on a whirlwind journey that pulls apart and challenges Muslim stereotypes. When she is not doing stand-up, you may see Fatiha on your TV screens, including The Jonathan Ross Show and Russell Howard Comedy Hour.

Farah Sharp

An English-Egyptian comedian based in London. She has performed around the UK as well as in Sydney, Australia. Her stand-up is a mix of quirky opinions and anecdotes, often based around her upbringing or relationship
