The Comedy Reserve: Pleasance Dome, Edinburgh, 2019
Always Be Comedy: The Tommyfield pub, Kennington, London, 2019
Mo Omar performed a fifteen-minute set as part of the Comedy Reserve showcase of new comedians that I saw at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2019. The Somali-born, Cardiff-raised and London-based comic was hilarious with crowd banter and unique storytelling.
Omar was the first on the bill at a showcase that I saw at Always Be Comedy in October 2019. Again he was extremely engaging with the crowd and had some great put downs and self depreciation which endeared him to the crowd.
