Pariah Khan - Big Man

Doors: 6.45pm for 7.00pm show
Duration: 30min
Price: Free (donations)

After the success of his debut production An Indian Abroad, Pariah Khan will be performing an extract from his new work-in-progress show BIG MAN.

In his self-sardonic storytelling style, Khan explores themes of sex and race through the prism of masculinity (or rather his lack of it), alongside learnings from life and life on the road with his last show.

A writer, performer, comedian and filmmaker based in Bristol, England, Pariah has written and performed in theatre, stand-up comedy, storytelling events and he also directed and wrote the short film 'Slice' through Channel 4's Random Acts scheme. Oh, and he's a professional wrestling manager.

"A shrewd and bitingly funny send-up of the 'spiritual journey" **** PubTheatres Magazine

"That Pariah Khan is a smart man. It's a jaunty hour, full of well-timed gags yet beneath the joviality, there lies an acerbic touch" **** Kris Hallett, Bristol Post reviewer

"The best comedy can both make us laugh and make us think; An Indian Abroad succeeds on both fronts" - Blog of Theatre Things
