Jamali Maddix: King Crud

Date:Fri 18 Mar 2022
Venue:J2 (seated show)
Price:£18 adv

Hot off the heels of his success on ‘This is My House’ (BBC1) and Taskmaster (Channel 4) Jamali Maddix is hitting the road once again with KING CRUD.

A radical raconteur - Jamali broke records with his debut documentary series Hate Thy Neighbor in 2017, which, broadcasting on VICELAND, became the channel’s highest rated show globally. The series saw Jamali navigate America’s deepest south and roughest prisons, explore rising racial tensions in Britain and Europe and anti-assimilation groups in Israel interspersed with honest narration in the form of his cutting-edge stand-up; “I’m not qualified for this role I’ll be honest with you…. I am just a comedian”. Returning for a second run for the following year, Jamali travelled back to the states focusing on demonstrations by pro-lifer groups, vigilante border patrols and third-wave feminists. 

Jamali returns to UK venues with his latest show KING CRUD which draws upon the issues of morality and justice as well as Jamali’s own personal growth and experiential learnings; all delivered with his natural charm, confidence and sensitivity that leaves many of his contemporaries behind.   

Getting a taste for travel with his series work, Jamali embarked on his first world tour in 2018 and 2020 until it was cut short. Jamali visited North America, Europe, Australia, Asia and the Middle East. The tour included a complete sell out run of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. 

With a string of new projects on the go Jamali is also recognisable from appearances on Live At The Apollo, Frankie Boyle’s New World Order, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Dara O’Brien’s Go 8-Bit and many more.
