Reading from his colourful memoir, Omid Djalili recalls his unconventional childhood in an Iranian guesthouse in London.
Omid recalls his experiences as a ten-year old medical translator and revisits a poignant period when religious tensions in Iran reached his family home in Kensington.
Comedian and actor Omid Djalili is one of Britain's funniest men. His memoirs take us through his unconventional childhood growing up in an Iranian household in London and chart his progression from serious acting into comedy.
It's a laugh-out-loud, intelligent and deeply touching journey through a fascinating life.
