Join us for a night of rip-roaring laughter from two Sudanese comedians, and warmly hosted by Mohamed Kamal.
Mamoun Elagab’s natural flair has made him a winner and finalist of numerous comedy competitions over the years. Chortle said “Chilled composure and a fascinating back-story… a comic who you’d like to hear more from.”
Mohammed Terwis is a Sudanese-Dutch actor and satirist. He is best known for his repertoire of satirical characters that expose the many contradictions at the heart of Sudanese society. In this performance, Mohammed Terwis uses humour to explore the sensitive themes of migration and asylum through keen observation and powerful allegory, he invites his audience to look again at what it really means to be a refugee in Europe.

Age guidance: This is edgy comedy so discretion is advised – we’d suggest 15+
Sudafest is a celebration of Sudanese culture. Everyone is welcome at Sudafest – Those with Sudanese heritage and those who want to learn more. We‘ll revel in the breadth and vibrancy of Sudanese culture by coming together with music, food, theatre, dance, workshops, a parade, and more! There’ll be something for all ages, with a play area for children as well as programmed activities.
The first Sudafest was 2021 and we are back with a bountiful programme this year, running across two days: Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th July.
