Series 2, Episode 2
Tonight, Omid's journey through history continues with his highly original portrayal of Henry VIII. With the departure of Catherine of Aragon, the King is looking for fresh blood. Spotting Anne Boleyn embroidering quietly under a tree, the tinsel-tongued Tudor sets out to woo her.
French history also comes under the microscope with Omid's take on Napoleon Bonaparte. The diminutive Emperor has conquered all of Europe and turns to his next ambition - to be a catwalk model ... but woe betide anyone who suggests height may be an issue.
Next, Omid steps into the inventive shoes of James Bond's gadget man, Q. Showing 007 around his customised Aston Martin DB7, Q is keen to point out the innovative windscreen-wiper and central-locking systems. "Is everything ok at home, Q?" asks the bemused secret agent.
Straightforward stand-up is also on the agenda as Omid's musings cover the British love of queuing and football chants. And, finally, mini-cab drivers and London cabbies have a musical stand-off (The Knowledge versus sat nav) in song and dance spectacular Minicab - The Musical.
