Omid Djalili stars in The Infidel



From acclaimed writer and comedian David Baddiel comes the smash hit British comedy of the year! Mahmud (Omid Djalili – star comic, Sex and The City 2) is a loving husband, doting father and an admittedly “relaxed” Muslim. A normal guy living an everyday life. That is until a chance discovery turns his life upside down, throwing him into a full-scale identity crisis: it turns out he’s adopted, and was actually born Jewish. Featuring an all-star cast of Djalili, Richard Sciff (The West Wing), Matt Lucas (Little Britain), Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife) and Miranda Hart (BBC2’s Miranda), The Infidel is a hilarious and feel good story that will have you roaring with laughter. Oy Vey!
