Jeff Mirza | Speaker Biography

British-Pakistani stand-up comedian
1995 BBC Open Mic Award winner
First British Muslim comedian to perform in Saudi Arabia

Jeff Mirza is a highly skilled British-Pakistani stand-up comedian known for his expertise in stereotypical and Islamic humor. He effortlessly transitions from one hilarious skit to another, leaving audiences in stitches from the moment he takes the stage. Jeff is the perfect choice for a variety of events, whether corporate, public, or private, and has headlined popular comedy festivals throughout the country. His talent has been recognized with numerous accolades, including the 1995 BBC Open Mic Award and the 2018 BEFFTA Legends Award. Jeff's comedy career began while he was studying for a Master's degree in Engineering, when he joined a comedy group called The Men from ChaCHa. Their sketch, The Chappattidales, a comical dance parody of the Chippendales, gained recognition and led to Jeff being awarded the Hackney Empire East West Quest. This launched his stand-up career, and he quickly became a prominent figure in both Asian and general comedy. From writing humorous columns for magazines to starring in the 1995 classic Haggis & Curry, alongside Brian Higgins, Jeff has made a significant impact on the comedy scene. In 2003, Jeff's popular show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Walking with Muslims, featured his critically acclaimed portrayal of Saddam Hussein. This politically driven comedy coincided with the Iraq War and showcased Jeff's ability to offer relevant and thought-provoking humor. His performance gained international acclaim, and he became the first British Muslim comedian to perform a sell-out show in Saudi Arabia. As a performer, Jeff is not only talented but also well-informed about current affairs. This allows him to provide the most relevant and engaging comedy sketches when booked for events. He is often invited to moderate interfaith discussions and debates, adding a light-hearted and comedic touch. In 2011, he even presented the world's first interfaith game show, Faith Off, at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Described by Time Out as the "sharpest Asian stand up on the alternative comedy circuit," Jeff Mirza is a comedy pioneer who brings freshness and confidence to his performances. Booking him for your event will transform an ordinary occasion into an unforgettable experience. To hire Jeff Mirza, contact PepTalk.
