Prophets or losses? Blasphemy or Blast-for-me? See Muslim comic Jeff Mirza's hilarious jihadi fuelled 'faith off' about world beliefs fresh from a tour of Saudi Arabia. Do beards really matter? Why was JK Rowling being discussed at the local Mosque? Nectar Points or Clubcards: which is halal? Are gay Muslims allowed? Can cousin marriages, burqas, consumption of meat, inquisitions and crusades really help one get to heaven? Allah, Buddha, Christ, Dawkins, or Darwin - none are spared. Just don't shoot the messenger! Jews and Hindus welcome. Ramadan Mubarak!
Not hilarious. Nectar points or Clubcards not discussed. Which is Halal not mentioned. Gay muslims, cousin marriages, burqas, consumption of meat et al not mentioned. No humour content whatsover; no satire; perhaps an "off night" for the performer. Proved more entertaining on the Royal Mile when promoting the show himself. Low-light of the Fringe for me.
