Red Richardson Eshaan Akbar
Double Edinburgh Preview! Eshaan Akbar: WIP
Akbar brings a preview of his new Edinburgh show "Prophet Like It's Hot". Following his sellout run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2017, he has since appeared on Radio 4's "The Now Show" having previously supported Dane Baptiste and Micky Flanagan.
This year, he returns armed with a copy of the Qur’An in his hand. It’s not all bad, some if it doesn’t make sense and faith still has a place in modern society. It’s a much funnier book than people give it credit for.
“Genius stand-up comedy” ***** (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine)

'Red Richardson was nearly cast as Harry Potter when he was 9. He didn't get the part and lost millions in the process. He has since had to live like you, this is his story.
