Half of young people in British prisons are BME (Black/Minority Ethnic). Political commentators say this is a gross indictment of our broken society; we think it’s a model of ethnic diversity the Cambridge Footlights should aspire to: #MakeFootlightsAPrison.
FootDarks are three of said comedy troupe’s finest stand-ups, and they’re all BME (we prefer “alt-white”). Find out why Danny Baalbaki believes white parents prefer dogs over their kids, how Patrick Sylla started a fight at the Tate Modern (and still got a better review than Jeff Koons) and how autocorrect got Hasan Al-Habib banned from a funeral (again).
These three Cambridge Footlights have finely crafted this stand-up show that is sure to leave you in stitches of laughter, unless of course you’re some kind of racist or one of Hasan’s parents.
