Ali Hassan - MUSLIM INTERRUPTED

Warning: some language content Tue Oct 3 8:00 PM

In this solo show, stand-up comic and actor Ali Hassan (Man Seeking Woman, Odd Squad, CBC Radio’s Laugh Out Loud) delivers a bitingly funny piece of work on flunking out of Sunday school, ingesting forbidden fruits, and becoming a cultural Muslim. The show is a refreshingly hilarious antidote to our increasingly troubling global climate, delivered by this mainstay star of television, film, radio and stage. Warning: some language content.
