“Really enjoyed Joe Nawaz’s one man show Fake I.D.Tightly written, very witty and admirably honest.” Brendan Hughes, IrishNews



"It’s difficult to fit in when your dad sticksout like a brown thumb and even you aren’t sure how to EXACTLY pronounce yoursurname..."


Following acclaimed sold-out shows at the Belfast ComedyFestival and Accidental Theatre in 2017, Fake I.D is coming to the Riversidefor North Coast audiences to enjoy.


Written and performed by Joseph Nawaz, Fake I.D. is aone-man show (“with slides”) about struggles with family and identity in a coldsocial climate...


Growing up in a mixed-race, mixed-faith household at theheight of the northern Irish troubles, Joseph takes us through some old familysnapshots, and his childhood years in 80s and 90s Belfast.


Expect excruciating revelation, some confusion as to theactual direction of Mecca from Balmoral Avenue plus an attempt to finallysolving the age-old riddle of what the difference is between a ProtestantMuslim and a Catholic Muslim.


Running through it all, like a stick of cardamom-flavouredrock, is Joe’s complicated relationship with his Pakistani father, whosesudden, untimely demise precipitated a trip to Pakistan and some surprisingdiscoveries.


Join Joe for a funny, sometimes poignant evening, in a showabout identity, family and belonging, not to mention the impossibility of ahalal Ulster Fry.
