Event Details

Desi Central is back with another amazing line-up and night of nothing but laughter with Noreen Khan, Rahul Kohli, Tez Ilyas & Nabil AbdulRashid.



Noreen Khan

Noreen Khan is a hugely popular radio and TV presenter. She currently presents her show on BBC Asian Network weekdays from 1:30-5pm and listening figures regularly prove she has the most listened to Asian radio show in the UK.

Her warm and natural presenting style has made her an instant hit with the audience and she is also one of the most sought after comperes to host high profile events up and down the country.


Tez Ilyas

Tez Ilyas the ground running finding himself in no less than eight competition finals including the prestigious BBC New Comedy Award and Leicester Mercury New Comedian of the Year in his first year as a stand up. In 2015 Ilyas achieved phenomenal success with his debut stand up hour TEZ Talks. A sell out run at the Soho Theatre and his own Radio 4 series based on the show followed, with a second series quickly being recommissioned.

In 2016, his highly anticipated follow up show Made in Britain went on to sell out every single performance (including extra shows) at the Edinburgh Fringe and gained spectacular critical acclaim, with a smash hit nationwide tour in 2017.

His third show Teztify once again delivered a spectacularly powerful, provocative and brilliantly funny hour of topical stand up, delivering to packed out audiences night after night.

Tez has appeared on The Last Leg (C4), Mock the Week (BBC Two), Live From the BBC (BBC Two), Man Like Mobeen (BBC Three), Live from the Comedy Store (Comedy Central), Kevin Hart's Live from Montreal (LOL Network), Virtually Famous (E4), The Now Show (BBC Radio 4) and made a brand new quiz show pilot for Vice. He has also written and starred in his own scripted comedy shorts for BBC Three, BBC iPlayer and Sky Arts.

Rahul Kohli

Rahul Kohli is one of the fastest rising act on the circuit. A young geordie asian man combining fierce political satire with surreal storytelling, in just a few short years, his debut solo show: Newcastle Brown Male gained critical acclaim at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival earning him a top pick of both BBC Radio 4 and the Huffington Post. It also gained him radio credits for BBC Radio 4's State of the Nation and BBC Asia Networks Big Asian Comedy Night. On top of this he has gained writing credits for other Radio 4 Shows while performing at some of the biggest clubs around the country from the Stand up North to the Comedy Store down south. In January 2017, Rahul became an award-winning comedian winning the prestigious NATYS, formerly the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year Award.'

Nabil AbdulRashid

Probably a name it took you a while to remember but a comedian/person and speaker you'll never forget. Nabil has been a professional stand up comic for over six years and has appeared on ITV, BBC2, Channel 4, Channel AKA, London Live, 5 Live, The Islam Channel, British Muslim TV & much more.

He's toured the UK and abroad as a stand up comedian, Holland to Tanzania as well as a motivational speaker and has had over a million views on YouTube from his social commentary.

As a humanitarian Nabil has helped raise money for orphanages, schools, wells and other charitable projects in Pakistan, Somalia, Syria, Palestine, Iraq as well as his family charitable project in Nigeria. Nabil has also cofounded a non for profit organisation in the U.K. Which provides shelter and housing for vulnerable young people and victims of domestic violence.

Despite all of this he is proudest of being a father, husband, marvel and dc fan (yes he can't decide between the two) and all around stand-up guy.
