Winner of the Amused Moose Laugh-off Competition, Chortle “Best Newcomer” Nominee 2010, and runner-up in “So You Think You’re Funny,” Naz Osmanoglu, has hit the London comedy circuit running. Already a Fringe veteran with acclaimed, irreverent sketch trio WitTank, he is now diverting his angry Anglo-Turkish energy to stand-up as well as sketch comedy.
Naz was selected to be one of the new stars on “Laughtershock” for BBC Three, a hybrid of stand-up and sketch comedy, and returned to Edinburgh in 2010 as a performer in “The Comedy Zone,” The Fringe’s longest running new talent showcase and with another sellout show with Wittank.
Naz took his first solo show “1000% Awesome” to the Edinburgh Festival in 2011 and returned with another show from Wittank. Naz is currently writing and performing sketches with WitTank for a new eight-part series on BBC3. He will return to the Edinburgh festival in 2012 with both a solo show and with WitTank.
