The Laughter Factory in Doha

Imran Yusuf, Phil Nichol and Stephen Grant bring the chuckles to Qatar

The Laughter Factory in Doha

Guess who’s back? Back again. Kenyan-born, London-raised Imran Yusuf, also described as, “watching Eminem do stand-up”, is touring alongside distinctly different but equally entertaining Canadian comic Phil Nichol and safe bet Stephen Grant, with The Laughter Factory this month.

If you have witnessed a Laughter Factory gig, you know what you are in for, and with a line-up like the above, April is going to be the month for guaranteed giggles. We are talking serious commitment to comedy – The Laughter Factory has showcased reams of A-list comics on their way to superstardom, including Michael McIntyre, Russell Peters, Ed Byrne, Dara O’Briain, Ross Noble, Jason Manford, Sean Hughes, Kevin Bridges and Frankie Boyle.

So, this month, leave your stress at home and laugh with this trio of rising stars. The Laughter Factory has been in the business for two decades, so the least we can assure you is your money’s worth. And an awesome, rib-tickling night out!


There’s nothing shady about him, except for more than a few comparisons to hip-hop. Yusuf is one of the freshest comedic voices to arrive in the past decade with his rhythmic delivery attracting high-profile fans.


Part actor, part musician, part stand-up comedian, but all manic energy, you might remember Nichol from the films 12 Angry Men and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest which he appeared in.


Grant should be on your comedian speed dial if you are interested in an evening of laughs that goes off without a hitch. He even gets called onto TV to warm-up live studio crowds.
