LUBNA KERR


Home of the Scottish actor and comedian.

About


After completing the Laughing Horse comedy course in 2013, Lubna has become a regular face on the Scottish comedy circuit. She has gigged in the UK as well putting in the occasional appearance in The States.  With humour that bases around her Asian heritage, Lubna attempts to both break down and play on the stereotypes attached to her background.

In March 2018, Lubna's debut show, 'The Asian Ellen DeGeneres', premiered at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival. The show acted as a showcase for Lubna's talent for character comedy - characters heavily-leaden with Asian stereotypes and a rich Scottish sense of humour.

2019 saw Lubna design her new solo show called, “Where are You Really From?” - a question asked by many people on a daily basis. Her reply depends on the person asking her. Early 2020 saw the her perform the new show in Leicester Comedy Festival.

Lubna is also a trained actor and has made appearances on stage, television and film. She was one of the stars of 'Still Game' at the Hydro in 2014 and has also made appearances in BBC1's 'Scot Squad' and 'Armchair Detectives'. She made her big screen debut in the feature film 'Moon Dogs’. In 2019, her second feature film” Christmas in the Highlands” saw her play the role of a baker. More recently Lubna makes a guest appearance BBC One's successful Scottish sitcom 'Two Doors Down', in the fourth season.

Lubna has been very lucky to be awarded funding from Creative Scotland as part of the Create Inclusion programme and followed up with funding from Open fund which allowed her to completed her first play, “Tick Box”.

The purpose of this funding was to allow her to write, produce and perform a semi-autobiographical, one-woman play about migration, relationships, theatre and arts. This exciting project was the perfect vehicle to showcase Lubna’s talent as a writer, actor, and comedian.

This project also allowed her to explore her own identity, as a Scottish, Pakistani woman, both as an actor, and within the white, male-dominated comedy circuit.

2021 saw Tickbox performed at the Edinburgh Fringe where Lubna teamed up with Army at the Fringe. The 6 nights were a sell out and Lubna, followed this up with 3 sold out performances at Tramway in Glasgow.

She is now touring it around the United Kingdom. See tour dates.
