“Omid was fantastic, really well received. His act was pitched perfectly” CWA Event Management (Omid was Celebrity host of the Business Travel Awards)
“Very warmly received, he met all expectations. The length of performance was testament to how well he did with the audience.” The Hedge Funds Care Charities
“One of the most joyfully smart, stimulating and entertaining comedians this country has.” The Telegraph
“Hugely enjoyable” Evening Standard
“To carve yourself out a career as the thinking person’s Iranian comedian in this political climate takes a fine brain and a masterful way with the audience. There is no question that Omid Djalili possesses both” Sunday Times
“Confident, engaging, thoughtful show…did someone say National Treasure?” Metro
“An absolute gem. It was a bit of a risk – but one that really paid off.” Call Centre Awards
“Omid was very easy going and keen to ensure he pitched his performance at the right level for the evening. He asked questions about the audience during rehearsal so that he could have some banter with them. The audience found Omid really amusing” Event Production Services
“Omid was absolutely first class. He got the audience’s attention right from the start and went down a storm” Bauer
“We’d previously had bad experiences with presenters so Omid was a BIG sigh of relief. Not only was he approachable and friendly but he was keen to take on board direction and really used his brief in his stand up routine, making jokes about the MD, the company and its rivals. He was funny, risky but not too risky and best of all got the crowd going with his topical humour. Would 100% use again.” Fortesqueues
