PREVIEW: Bilal Zafar, Cakes @ Komedia, 23/04/2017

The Verse’s Zahra Rahman previews Bilal Zafar and his upcoming show ‘Cakes’, heading to Brighton Komedia on Sunday 23rd April 2017

They say love can cure all illnesses and that laughter is the best medicine. These statements are proven to be true when it comes to the sometimes controversial Bilal Zafar, and how he is comically fighting Islamophobia!

His debut-solo show ‘Cakes’ is based on his Twitter handle @zafarcakes, which was mistaken for a Muslim-only bakery. Don’t miss the chance to see how he deals with Islamophobia. The rage of the far-right and the twitter ‘trolls’. Moreover, see how he tries to cure the illness called racism.

Also, with a great student offer of 2-4-1 at the Komedia, there is no excuse to not attend a show full of laughter. And for the chance to pick up a few insights into how certain communities must deal with ignorance on a regular basis.

The show ‘Cakes’ is coming to Brighton on the 23rd April and showing at the Komedia, 44-47 Gardner St, Brighton BN1 1UN.
The student 2-4-1 offer also makes it only a mere £5 each – with full price admission at only £10. But there are a limited 30 tickets! Grab your comedy night bargain by quoting ‘eatcake’ online, over the phone or in person.
