Born in Mombasa, Kenya and raised in the UK with a brief stint at school in the USA, Imran has also travelled much of the world. His work has been inspired by this rich multicultural background, giving him a youthful, energetic and highly original voice that embodies the multi-cultural wealth that exists in modern Britain.
He seamlessly switches between styles with graceful fluidity, repeatedly delivering heavy-weight punch lines with enormous panache. His seemingly light-hearted satire is mixed with hard-hitting topical commentary on contemporary issues that culminate into a tour de force of comedy offering an all-embracing sentiment in his trademark styling.
TV includes The Imran Yusuf Show, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and the Edinburgh Comedy Fest.
