A Law Undo His-Elf What Welcome

Behold the comedy event horizon. The new show from multi-award winning comedian Tony Law is inimitable surreal comedy-art at its best. A sort of comedy which means nothing, and yet everything. You will feel sick with awe. You will barf wonder.

Join Bilal as he takes you on a hilarious journey of how his Twitter handle, @zafarcakes, became a focal point for the misguided rage of the global far right when it was mistaken for the account of a Muslim-only bakery. Having provoked the outrage of such defenders of Britishness as Katie Hopkins, EDL supporters and the Daily Star, Cakes shows how BILAL used humour to respond to the prejudice and abuse increasingly faced by British Muslims today.
