Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee 2016 and New Act of the Year award winner Bilal brings us his highly anticipated debut show Cakes.

Join Bilal as he takes you on a fascinating and hilarious journey of how his Twitter handle, @zafarcakes, became a focal point for the misguided rage of the global far right when it was mistaken for the account of a Muslim-only bakery. Having provoked the outrage of such defenders of Britishness as Katie Hopkins, EDL supporters and the Daily Star, Cakes shows how Bilal used humour to respond to the prejudice and abuse increasingly faced by British Muslims today.

"Witty and absorbing…highly entertaining. I look forward to whatever Zafar cooks up next" - Dominic Maxwell, The Times

"Delivers some big laughs" - Brian Logan, The Guardian

"Zafar really delivers on the absurdity of an escalating social media farce running in parallel with growing prejudice and tensions, joyously exposing the stupidity on all sides" **** Ben Venables, The Skinny

"Endearing, relaxed and naturally funny...hilarious" **** Emily Phillips, EdFest Mag

STOP PRESS: Bonus! Bilal will now be doing a longer performance starting with an extra short set of work in progress material followed by the hour show after an interval
