Nominated Chortles 'Best Newcomer' 2018, Somali-born, Cardiff-raised and London Based, Mo Omar is a fast-rising talent with a unique perspective.
After Leicester Square New Comedian Of the Year 2017 competition, he has performed both nationally and internationally for the British Forces abroad in Bahrain, Romania, and even his native Somalia. Mo also writes and makes short-form videos for the new BBC Wales platform BBC Sesh.
a cheeky livewire of a performer who steamrollers into some potentially contentious areas with devil-may-care chutzpah if that Yiddish word isnt inappropriate for a lapsed Muslim who admits his former faith proving no match for the attractions of alcohol. Born in Somalia, Omar has a winningly irreverent attitude to sacred cows, with a fresh and feisty delivery that gives him a contemporary edge Chortle
