Season 2

The Omid Djalili Show is a British sketch comedy/stand-up comedy television series produced by Hat Trick Productions in which multi-award-winning stand-up comedian Omid Djalili is unleashed as a performer and writer in a show that mixes energetic stand-up with sketches and characters, taking a swipe at modern life in a multicultural society.

The series aired in the UK on BBC One from 17 November, 2007 to 25 May, 2009. There are 12 half-hour episodes in two seasons.

The Omid Djalili Show premiered in South Africa on DStv's BBC Entertainment channel on Tuesday 15 May 2012, at 22h00. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 2 premiered on BBC Entertainment on Tuesday 26 February 2013, at 22h00. New episodes broadcast weekly. There are six episodes in the second and final season.

Season 2

The London Olympics, a completely new take on Henry VIII, the credit crunch and darts players' wives are just some of the targets of the multi-talented actor, stand-up, writer and "Iran's answer to Carol Vorderman", in this new season of The Omid Djalili Show.

In a season stuffed full of sketches, songs and stand-up, the country's best-loved British-Iranian comedian takes a uniquely adult look at contemporary issues such as race, religion, football and lad culture.

In Episode 1, the comedian gives some TV favourites a Middle-Eastern makeover as Sheiks In The City and Jihad's Army get the "Look Eastwards" treatment.

Next, Omid dons facial hair and hose to bring Henry VIII to life in his own inimitable style, as he campaigns to be divorced from his feisty Spanish wife, Catherine of Aragon.

The comic returns as bouncer, broadcaster and Londoner Steve "The Dragon" Thompson, presenter of a video guide to the "real" London Olympics – with sports including "sitting on a man in a fight" and "eel-fencing".

The facial hair continues as Omid plays the part of a heavy-metal bailiff in Credit Crunch – The Rock Opera.

Finally, the comedian's stand-up routine takes the audience on a flight of fancy involving Somalian pirates, Gordon Brown doing the lottery and Egyptian taxi-drivers.
