Laughter is the best medicine!

I am a friendly doctor from the UK currently based in London, England. In addition to my usual role as a GP I enjoy teaching, speaking at events and doing stand up comedy and cabaret. I am currently performing with my stand-up comedy show ‘Doctor in the House'.

Doctor in the House

Doctor in the House is a 70 minute stand-up comedy show. It highlights some of the funny things which arise in a GP clinic on a day to day basis in a light hearted way. It looks at the human condition and the doctor patient relationship from a playful and interesting standpoint. (No individual patient particulars or specific real life cases are discussed in the show). As one critic put it, “Funny stories — which anyone who’s ever been to see a doctor can appreciate”.

There is also a more reaching subtext to the show. The viewer will hopefully leave with a few thoughts about how they might improve their own health and doctor consultations in the future.

In 2016 profits from the show went to various cancer charities and I am proud to say over $11k AUS was raised.

The show has been met with great success and was totally sold out in Perth Fringe, Adelaide Fringe, Edinburgh Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

“Only a true artist can make mortality funny, and it seems one has been born in Perth’s newest comic, Dr Ahmed” PerthNow.
