Yaba Yaba

what? another blog? you must be joking.

If it wasn’t my kid, I would laugh too

Actually, I did laugh. Even when the joke was on me.

Alia and Yamina kindly invited me to a preview of their new show. I’m not the comedy type, I usually get my laughs from the 10 o’clock news. But these girls hit the nail, and hit it hard. If you’re around Thursday night, come see them at the goodenough.

Disclosure: Alia’s an old friend, so obviously I’m biassed, but hey – what’s the point of having a blog if you can’t promote your friends?

Alia Alzougbi and Yamina Bakiri would like to invite you to a night of quirky comedy. It’s Nothing Personal will explore at least 1001 ways of stereotyping “the Middle East” In this magic carpet ride, we will address the following:

  • Is west of the Middle East still east?
  • What are the political and health benefits of olive oil?
  • Is female emancipation down to shaving hair?
  • Would the Big Bad Wolf discriminate on the basis of religion?
  • Does it make sense to marry a brain surgeon when your father is diabetic?
  • What do the Koran and The Communist Manifesto have in common?

Unfortunately the accuracy of the answers is not guaranteed with the ticket price (£5); as such, we cannot promise you an educative night, but you might just have a chuckle (or two). It’s Nothing Personal will take place on Thursday the 19th of June at 8:30pm in Goodenough College, London House Large Common Room, WC1N 2AB. All proceeds go to SOS children  http://www.soschildrensvillages.org.uk/children-charity.htm
