BIO: YASSER KAYANI

Yasser is the token Asian of the group and is never allowed to forget it. Born in the sea in a cornetto wafer cone off Yugoslavia in 1916, he is currently married to Hello Magazine and lives in a gingerbread house in the woods with his three children - Rubix Cuban, Alan Hansel and Gretel Garbo.  He married his first wife once, his second wife twice, and his third wife three times. Then he spoiled that arithmetic progression, but created a different symmetry.   He went back and married his second wife a third time, and concluded by marrying his fourth wife once. 

Meanwhile, in our world, Yasser works widely as a professional stand-up, sketch comedian, impressionist, actor and comedy writer; his style of comedy is highly surreal, absurdist and anarchic.

He is represented by Mac & Jeal.

Yasser is a graduate of the prestigious National Film and Television School (NFTS) Writing & Producing Comedy Diploma which is sponsored by Channel Four and taught by legendary producer and writer Bill Dare and he has also graduated with an MA in Screenwriting from the University of London.

Yasser currently writes comedy sketches, monologues, songs and one liners for and performs in three sketch comedy groups: Chaos Theory, Monkey Wedding and The Melon Collective. He also writes as a staff writer for 'The Treason TV Show' - Brighton's long running topical satirical comedy show. The Treason Show was recently nominated for 'Best Sketch Show' in the UK Comedy Awards. And Yasser has recently joined the writing team of BBC Scotland's topical comedy TV show 'Breaking The News.'

Yasser is writing his first solo show - an anarchic, surreal comedy satire theatre show to be performed by him in 2025 under the tutelage of multi-award winning performer Katie Reddin-Clancy.  With his sketch comedy group Chaos Theory Yasser is performing their outrageous 'Lady Chatterley's Liver' show at The Vault Festival 2024, The Brighton Fringe 2024 and The Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2024.

Yasser is also a prolific TV and film screenwriter and playwright, science fiction and fantasy novelist, short story writer, asemic and psychogeographical poet, artist, musician and calligrapher. He is a keen Bollywood dancer and is also a qualified electronic engineer.
