Stand Up Cairo

A group of us all separately thought that it would be a marvellous idea to put on a stand up comedy show in Cairo, but unfortunately never actually got off our arses and did anything about it. Then fate brought us together at that party where I wore very high-waisted jeans and Forsooth told me off, and I met lovely Hair, who has the biggest best hair in the world, and her very tall fella Two Names Kay. Hair and Two Names Kay are like Cairo’s Brad and Anjelina, with marvellous contacts in the worlds of culture, entertainment and coffee shobs, and we gave each other high fives and then simultaneously pointed at each other with both hands and said ‘let’s get this show on the road!’

That last detail was made up unfortunately.

Together with Huge Tool and the Pig we managed to put it all together – despite there being about 68 cooks in the kitchen and lengthy ‘discussions’ about the name taking place – and we are proud to announce that Stand Up Cairo/Karkara fow2 el neel is officially habbening. Details below.

**Please could anyone with a blog/a notice board/friends be a love and help to publicise this? We can provide you with posters to stick to your friends – email us. Ta, and if you’re in Cairo in May, please come**

Cairo is a comedy cow and we’re milking it.

Stand Up Cairo is reviving the lost art of Egyptian stand up comedy. We will be holding auditions on the 15/16 April from 6-10 pm during which talented individual performers will be invited to perform a two – five minute skit of original material in Arabic or English. We are talking here about classic stand up: one (wo)man and a mic. We are not interested in theatre troupes, nor do we want re-enactments of 1960s monologues. We are looking for the accountants, students, waiters and doctors who can find the comedy in Cairo’s craziness.
