Mr Khan, created and performed by Adil Ray, is a larger than life character, with strong opinions and big dreams, facing the challenge of how to make ends meet yet keep his family happy. Things would be much easier if everyone just listened to him and followed his lead, and now he is hoping they finally will.

Citizen Khan is currently the most watched comedy show on British television and has been bestowed four awards by the Royal Television Society – including ‘Best Performance in a Comedy’, awarded to Adil Ray in both 2013 and 2014.

On announcing his first ever solo live stage show, Mr Khan, Community Leader, said: ‘Asalaam Alaikum and hello, how do you do to all you non-Muslim peoples. Mr Khan Community leader speaking. I’m very pleased to be able to get the chance to meet you all in my busy schedule. I will be informing you all on how to deal with all areas of British life; family, fashion, food, school, and of course being a good Muslim.’
