Isma Almas is British multi-culturalism at its best: Bradford-born and a childhood split between Pakistan and Yorkshire. Isma’s comedy is fused by her unique take on life as a British Muslim woman.

She is a regular on the comedy circuit across the UK, and has performed solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, London’s Barbican Centre for Stonewall, Bradford’s Literature Festival and on a raucous luxury gay cruise around the Med!
As well as winning The First Laugh at Sheffield Comedy Festival, Isma was a semi-finalist in So You Think You’re Funny and made it to the final of Funny Women. She spent six months co-presenting the mid-morning show on BBC Radio Leeds, where interviewing a number of famous names. 

A much-needed voice in comedy today, audiences love Isma’s friendly, Bradford-infused, preconception-shattering style. Isma is a regular face on the BBC Asian Network and as appeared on Richard Herring’s Leicester Sq Podcast, Drunk Women Solving Crime, Happy Mummy, Happy Baby and more.

With an academic background in Social Sciences and Social Work, Isma’s career outside of comedy has included working in a forensic unit for those with significant mental health problems as well as managing independent fostering agencies.
