He performs worldwide & his professional career has taken him from private banking through to corporate communications via a career in local government public policy.
Nabil Abdul Rashid,Nabil Abdul Rashid is the very long awaited comedic breath of fresh air.Born in London but raised in Northern Nigeria to a Medical doctor father and a politician/business woman mother he has been fortunate to travel around the world at young age and had a private school education before moving to back to England to live in Croydon south London (or croy croy as he fondly calls it).Nabil Abdul Rashid switches from surreal to satirical in his dichotomy of being a middle-class educated man yet simultaneously a street-smart urban youth while avoiding clichés when dealing with topics such as being a black Muslim in South London. He switches accent and languages and blends them into his material.
