Afghanistan is Not Funny


Abducted by Mujahideen; menaced by war-criminals; walking into minefields. This is the extraordinary, true story of a British comedian and photographer in war-torn Afghanistan… 

In 2002, whilst researching a comedy, triple Fringe First winner Henry Naylor and Scottish Feature Photographer of the Year Sam Maynard blundered into the warzone. 

21 years later, Naylor relates the tale, accompanied by Maynard’s pictures.

A leading award-winner on the 2022/3 international fringe circuit, Afghanistan is Not Funny recently transferred off-Broadway and off-West End, has received 31 five and four star reviews, including The Telegraph, The Scotsman and The Mail and was the winner of IFES World's Best Fringe Theatre 2023.
