Formation Festival: Lubna Kerr: Where Are You Really From?

21:15, 02 Mar

This show is a blend of stand-up and character comedy. People often call Lubna the Asian Ellen DeGeneres. In the show actress, comedian and self-confessed busybody, Lubna Kerr shares her views on a range of topics. From the joys of living in Scotland and the perils of visiting America whilst being Asian, to the tedium of wrangling idiots and dealing with other people’s dogs, no subject, no matter how weird, random or seemingly small is off limits. And while her talking points may not be in the least bit related, you can be sure that Lubna will explore them with a liberal dose of humour – and possibly some humour about liberals. As the name suggests, the show – which has already proved to be a talking point with audiences at the Edinburgh Fringe and Aberdeen Comedy Festival – also pays homage to the great American comedian, actress, writer and chat show host Ellen DeGeneres.

Lubna is now a familiar face on the Scottish comedy circuit – and beyond – and regularly performs in comedy clubs across the UK and America. Combing her comedy and acting backgrounds . She has numerous TV credits to her name including appearances in BBC Scotland’s cult comedy show Scot Squad and the BBC1’s hugely popular Armchair Detectives as well as Two Doors down.

She played Meena in the live stage version of Still Game, which sold out its 21-night run at the Hydro in 2014. Lubna has created a cast of characters, including the incorrigible Auntie Jee, who pop up throughout the show.
