Best of The Fest: Assembly on the Mound, Edinburgh, 2011
Stand Up Against Alzheimer’s: The Comedy Store, London, 2019
Stand Up for Jeremy Hardy: Hammersmith Apollo, London, 2022
Imran Yusuf had a guest spot for a Best of The Fest showcase at the Edinburgh Fringe that I attended in 2011. His inspired routine of having a dream and seeing it through, overcoming the obstacles of fear and opposition with self-belief seemed to give the late-night audience pause-for-thought as well as much laughter.
Yusuf was a special guest at Stand Up Against Alzheimer’s at The Comedy Store, London in June 2019, and at Stand Up for Jeremy Hardy at the Hammersmith Apollo in January 2022. He was positive, happy and energetic in his delivery perfectly judging the cue for laughter when talking about his experiences of living in modern Britain. The audience loved him, and he was an excellent addition to the shows.
