Rising star Mawaan Rizwan is getting ready for the Edinburgh Fringe where he will be performing his standup cum dance cum cabaret cum fashion modelling show for a month. Luckily, for those of us in and around London, we have a chance to see him this Sunday July 1st at the go-to comedy performance space, 2Northdown in Kings Cross.

Following earlier in the year from ‘Twerk in Progress’, this one-time Youtube sensation and BBCII! discovery is all fired up with his latest show Juice.  OutSavvy caught up with him for a quick tea outside BBC New Broadcasting House last week after his regular BBC Radio Asian Network show Mawaan and Emily.

For those who know Mawaan already, Juice has all his usual boundless and infectious energy mixed with his brand of very funny absurdist storytelling, you come to expect. This is why, even with this hot weather and that football tournament going on at the moment, and especially for newbies, it is well worth taking an hour out of your time to see what Mawaan is getting up to.

Also, he tells us that there is more dancing and more specially designed costumes this time!

We try to find out more about his outfits but he is being coy although he said it is based on lots of socks that he found when rummaging in his laundry bin and it will wow the audience as it has been especially made by one of the designers at the Queer East London cabaret hotspot, The Glory.

So, having checked the fixtures for Sunday, unless you support Denmark or ‘TBD’, Mawaan’s show should be the perfect end to a gorgeous summer weekend… oh and he assures us that the socks on his costume are clean.
