Prince Abdi – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2007

Review by Steve Bennett

Relative newcomer Prince Abdi claims to be the only Somalian comic working in the UK, even if he brilliantly punctures his own unique-selling-point so as to fit in better.

He has a lovely style in his delivery – pacy, upbeat and infectious – that makes the audience warm to him. Set pieces such as his Bollywood reconstruction capitalise on that energy well.
