Somali-born, Cardiff-raised and London-based, Mo Omar is a fast-rising talent with a unique perspective on culture, faith and love. Recently making his TV debut on Harry Hills Clubnite on Channel 4, Mo was also selected to perform in The Pleasance Comedy Reserve show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019, and was a finalist in the BBC Introducing Radio 4 Comedy Award.

This live online gig, hosted by Edinburgh-award winning stand-up Tom Parry, will also feature No Direction Home comedians Selam Mengistu, Yasin Moradi and Pepa Duarte.

No Direction Home, created by Counterpoints Arts, Camden People’s Theatre and Tom Parry was founded in 2018. We run free workshops and have staged gigs across the country, and since March this year have been working entirely online.

Previous gigs have featured guest headliners including Nish Kumar, Lou Sanders and Romesh Ranganathan.

STAR is the national network of student groups working to improve the lives of refugees across the UK. It is made up of 50 groups at universities and colleges across the UK and a national team which co-ordinates and supports the groups. STAR groups are students’ union societies which are affiliated to the charity.
