Man Like Mobeen, written and created by Guz Khan and Andy Milligan, follows Mobeen (Guz Khan), a 29-year-old man from Small Heath, a reported no go zone for anyone who isn’t Muslim and a hotbed for terrorist activity. In reality Mobeen, like most other people in Birmingham, knows no terrorists, and spends his personal time parenting his best friends Eight and Nate and – most importantly – his little sister and love of his family life, Aqsa. He does all of this alone, acting as a very hairy mother, father and brother figure in the hood.
Offering a rarely seen insight into working class life as an ethnic minority, Man Like Mobeen addresses real issues whilst maintaining the comedic palatability of Guz Khan’s unique voice.
Guz Khan says: “I always knew we could make something that would make working class people laugh and be proud of who we are. It just so happens that Cuthbert from Monmouth and a couple of UKIP supporters liked it as well. Who’d have thought hey?”
