Suicide Bummer

The masked comedian known as Suicide Bummer raised eyebrows with his Queer South Asian show at Brighton Fringe, and he will be debuting in London at 2Northdown on 5th June.

Suicide Bummer raised the roof at the Brighton Fringe festival with a bold and hilarious comedy debut. The show’s truly unique subject matter is dangerously radical by its very nature.

“You have to be suicidal to talk openly about being gay and Muslim; when you add sex work to the mix, it becomes explosive!” – Suicide Bummer.

Suicide Bummer cleverly navigates the audience through some shocking twists that exist within the conflicting premise of traditional South Asian family values, sex work, sexuality and arranged marriage, all the while unapologetically celebrating working-class queerness with high camp.

Suicide Bummer exists between a rock and a hard place, yet somehow he remains optimistic throughout and survives with tenacious wit. At the heart of the show is an earnest and vulnerable tale that is undeniably captivating. 

Suicide Bummer The comedian sets the record straight. He grew up in London and witnessed the sharp increase in islamophobia and mass hysteria in the aftermath of 9/11 and 7/7 – “nobody wanted to sit next to the bearded brown guy on the tube!”

Suicide Bummer performs in a mask and is no stranger to performing in unconventional costumes; he’s rooted in East London’s avant-garde drag scene!

The late Adam Brace, Associate Director at Soho Theatre, described him as “genuinely funny and compelling.” Suicide Bummer promises to be compelling, witty, and above all else, unpredictable!
