Win yourself a pair of tickets to Şaka Maka, a new Turkish stand-up comedy show in East London

Later this month, a new Turkish comedy concept Şaka Maka will make its debut in Bethnal Green. Four young British Turkish talents, Aslı Akbay, Şaban ‘Shaban’ Kâzım, Hassan Dervish and Rusen Tuzcu, will be drawing on their ethnic roots to present an all-Turkish evening of comedy as part of the brand new Eastern European Comedy Festival. They will be live for your entertainment at the renowned Backyard Comedy Club on Sunday 25 February.
