‘The sell-out crowd are hooked. We’re a captive audience’
Smart, sharp and brilliantly astute, Kae Kurd is a young British-Kurdish stand up making a serious name for himself. Passionate about making politics accessible to his peers, his comedy presents beautifully crafted slick routines with confident cutting edge flair.
In 2016, he was part of the Pleasance’s prestigious Comedy Reserve showcase and supported Dane Baptiste on his nationwide tour.
In 2017 Kae took his debut hour Kurd Your Enthusiasm to the Edinburgh Fringe achieving excellent critical acclaim. His unique back story as a child refugee and his emergence from the Black British comedy circuit totally shining out amongst the newcomer landscape.
TV credits include Know Your Rights (own series on Channel 4 OD), Comedians Solve World Problems (Comedy Central) Three Guys Eat (BBC Three) and BBC Asian Network’s Big Comedy Night. His radio appearances include A Night of International Comedy for BBC World Service and Best of the Fringe for BBC Radio 4 Extra. He’s also a regular radio presenter on BBC Asian Network.
Kae is also a recognised rising star in creating and curating short form content across a range of platforms, particularly notable for this hit podcast Quota’s Full.
With this kind of track record, he’s most definitely one to watch.
