I saw Kae Kurd deliver his set at Always Be Comedy in 2017. In his set, Kurd explored his identity. Born to refugee parents who were part of the Iranian Kurdish armed struggle, his set was fascinating and sometimes difficult to find the line between argument and comedy. He didn’t take the audience’s attention for granted and worked hard on stage ultimately delivering a routine with lots of humour, energy and style.
I watched Kurd perform a twenty-minute set at Always Be Comedy in September 2019. In his set, he talked about his Kurdish upbringing and his humorous experiences of living in Britain. He had a great command of voices for all the characters in his stories and was a big hit with the audience.
Kurd returned to Always Be Comedy in November 2019 with a new work-in-progress set. I saw him on a bill again at Headliners Comedy Club in February 2020 where he explained his view on technology and the ever-changing world with humour and biting wit.
The comedian was a guest at Always Be Comedy in September 2022 and once again displayed brilliant comedy timing as he ranted about his experiences of coping with the pandemic and his life in general.
Kurd gets better and better every time I watch him, and the very funny man is well worth seeing.
