COMIC Rudi Lickwood brings his bold brand of humour to the Beck Theatre next week. The show is a satirical look at his own national identity - black, British, proud - and is packed with insightful social comments as to who he is and why he is.
Setting him apart from his counterparts, Rudi's comedy mirrors the ever-changing face of multicultural modern Britain. From driving a German car to an Irish pub, drinking Belgian beer while eating his Indian takeaway, and sitting on his Swedish furniture while watching an American programme on his Japanese TV.
His reputation for being a thought-provoking comic has grown out of a desire to both educate and entertain at the same time. Broaching topics such as race and immigration may be problematic for some, but for Rudi they are a comedy gold mine, clashing with his British nationality and cultural West Indian-African heritage.
* The show is on Tuesday, October 28, starting at 8pm. Tickets cost £12 from the The Beck box office, on 020 8561 8371.
