The ‘Agent, Stylist And PA Wanted’ Show (Amrik Virk)

By | Published on Tuesday 16 August 2011

Ever wondered what it felt like to be the only Asian on the Tube after the 7/7 bombings? Or if you’ve forgotten to shave and happen to be wearing an excessively large backpack at Heathrow? Stand-up comedian Amrik Virk enlightens us, and energetically fires out a host of amusing anecdotes – ranging from his school faux pas to a dislike of Shania Twain – ridiculing racism and cultural stereotyping as he goes along. Some gags are a little drawn-out, but Amrik is a slick and charismatic performer who engages and interacts with the crowd, and you walk out feeling a little guilty that it’s a free show. Entertainment for everyone – unless you’re a member of the BNP, that is.

Laughing Horse at The Three Sisters, 4 – 14 Aug, 12.15pm (1.15pm), free, fpp34.
