Mawaan is an actor, writer and comedian. He has just finished filming with Maisie Williams on ‘Two Weeks to Live’ a new 6 part comedy series for Sky One, which comes out later this year. He has also starred in the ITV Drama ‘Next of Kin’ as well as the BAFTA winning ‘Murdered By My Father’.
Mawaan’s writing credit on Netflix' 'Sex Education' (series 2 and 3) earned him a spot on Forbes' 30 under 30 list.
As a comedian, Mawaan has appeared on BBC2's Live at the Apollo and Channel 4's Harry Hill's Clubnite, captivating audiences with his joyful yet deeply honest stand-up. His live performances of his songs 'Mango' and 'Never Been Skiing' both went viral earlier this year.
His Edinburgh 2018 show 'Juice' was a critical and commercial success, performing to sell-out audiences and receiving a plethora of 4 and 5 star reviews for his ‘thirst-quenching joy-ride of a stand up set’. Mawaan also recently supported 'Queer Eye's' Jonathan Van Ness on his tour ‘The Road to Beijing’, in UK, Australia and New Zealand.
