No Direction Home X Borderings hosted by Ola Labib

Join us for a night of laughter from the brilliant No Direction Home, hosted by Ola Labib, with Yasmeen Ghawri, Selam Amare, Edin Suljic, Charly Monreal.

No Direction Home is a comedy collective produced by Counterpoints Arts featuring new stand-ups from refugee and migrant backgrounds. They’ve performed sell-out gigs around the country including at London’s Southbank Centre and the Edinburgh Fringe.

Nish Kumar says: “The No Direction Home comedians are a very exciting, interesting and creative bunch of people to be around. And they are very funny!”

Host Ola Labib is a star of the comedy circuit being the only Black, Muslim, female, Sudanese comedian currently performing in the UK. She has already gained serious ground on the circuit, performed on TV shows such as Mo Gilligan’s Lateish and has no intention of slowing down.

Presented as part of Borderings.
