A close-shave with a landmine, menaced by a warlord and abducted by the Mujahideen: 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 two-time Scottish Feature Photographer of the Year Sam Maynard went to the Afghan Warzone… …it was a trip which changed both their lives and their art.
Performed by Naylor himself, in front of Maynard’s pictures, this docu-play takes us back to the start of a modern tragedy. Amusing and moving, Afghanistan Is Not Funny is one of the leading award-winners on this year’s international fringe circuit… and has won top prizes at the Edinburgh, Hollywood and Adelaide fringes.
