Countercultural goons Omar&Lee present their new show ‘Omar&Lee are EVERYMAN’ – a comedic dissection of contemporary masculinity told through sketches, clowning, music, philosophy, a little bit of crying and a whole lot of stupidity!
Despairing at the current state of western masculinity, Omar&Lee intend to further the cultural conversation by drawing inspiration from their own lived experience. ‘EVERYMAN’ offers a fresh perspective on masculinity and it’s place in the modern world and explores the male psyche, sexuality, fathers, authenticity, self-transformation, Jim Carrey and problematic ’90s sitcoms…
Omar&Lee are writers and performers Omar Ibrahim and Lee Drage. They co-run a comedy night in Brighton called YAK! YAK! and were recently nominated for an Off West End award (OffFest Best Short Run) for their online comedy show ‘SHIT SAMARITANS’ (“An intelligent and inspiring show!” – Theatre Weekly).
