Recent YouTube video of my stand-up comedy set:
Iffy started performing on the circuit in July 2019 but he has already compeered at 'Downstairs at The Kings Head', headlined at numerous open mics in London and opened for Shazia Mirza, Chris McCausland, Kae Kurd and Jeff Innocent on the pro circuit. Being British-Pakistani, queer, Muslim and working class; Iffy is a Londoner that ticks many diversity boxes alluding to foreseeable hate crimes against him; but this also happens to inspire some profoundly unique anecdotal gags, a very unusual story and hilarious autobiographical material.
Iffy beat 'The Blackout' at 'Up The Creek' (Greenwich) and beat the gong at 'Spiky Mike's Fun House Comedy' (Leicester). In July 2019, Iffy completed a stand-up comedy course at The Comedy School (Camden) at the top of his class. He has since studied acting, clowning, sit-com writing and compeering; and he is always actively working on improving as a performer. Iffy has been a performance artist for the best part of 20 years. He hosted countless club nights and private events and used to host a regular cabaret event at 'The Old Blue Last' (run by Vice.com) in Shoreditch.
In Feb 2015, Iffy produced a nightly webcast for an anti-fracking campaign group called 'Talk Fracking'. The show was called 'Bez's Bed In' starring Bez from 'Happy Mondays', with guests including Sean Lennon, Vivienne Westwood and Chunkymark Mark McGowan. The show featured on the BBC's “Charlie Brooker's Weekly Wipe” and Brooker raved that the show “shits all over Question Time.” Iffy is currently writing a sit-com for TV.
