Prince Abdi


The Guardian

Refreshingly funny.

The Stage

Pacy, upbeat and infectious.


Somalian born Prince Abdi is a British Stand-Up, actor, writer and a regular on the UK comedy circuit. His versatile and unique story telling style of comedy made him the perfect choice to support Reginald D Hunter, Stephen K Amos, Jack Whitehall and Dave Chappelle on their national tours. He has also performed alongside fellow comedians Chris Rock and Louis CK.

Prince started his career as a primary school teacher, teaching in West Hampstead, Kilburn and Brixton. In his spare time, he would deliver a number of stand-up comedy performances for free in a bid to establish his name on the comedy circuit. Eventually, he was able to quit his job as a teacher and pursue comedy full-time.

As well as being a regular on the UK comedy circuit, Prince Abdi has performed in various countries overseas including USA, Canada, Turkey, Holland, South Africa, The Emirates, France and Kenya.
