Guz Khan Has Landed a Role in a New Sky One Drama and This Makes Us Very Happy

You know who Guz Khan is, right? If you answered ‘no’ to that question five years ago – when he was an everyday teacher in Coventry – you are forgiven. But if you don’t know who he is now you need to have a word with yourself.

He first came to the attention of comedy lovers all over the country with a blisteringly-hilarious viral video, a seething critique of the latest Jurassic Park film. Let’s watch it again, because it is comedic gold dust. Okay? Okay. Let’s go…

After discovering the ferocious appetite that the British public have for Khan’s off-beat style of comedy, it wasn’t long before the BBC were knocking on his door. This led to him creating a rib-tickling four-part series called Man Like Mobeen. In it, he plays the part of a roadman from Birmingham, but one who wants to leave his shady past behind and start fresh. All he wants to do is practice his faith and lead a wholesome life – but his criminal past keeps coming back to haunt him.

Now, one year on, Khan has managed to land a role in Sky One’s new show Curfew. The eight-part series, which promises to be an action-packed, Fast-and-Furious-style drama will be the first non-comedic role that he has been involved in. At the moment it is unclear exactly what the Man Like Mobeen star’s role within the new thriller will be, but we know that the storyline involves underground street racing. So, perhaps he will finally become a real roadman – wheyyy. (Sorry, we are looking for new writers.)

According to the folks at Sky, the plot revolves around the lives of street racers in London who are desperate to soup up their cars and race them on the streets at night. They hope to use their pimped-out, super-modified vehicles to beat a tyrannical, totalitarian government who have imposed a curfew that controls their lives. Obvs not going to be another Fast and Furious, but it still seems like it has the potential to be sick.

Anyway, Khan has become kind of a big deal these days; in Curfew, he’ll be appearing alongside the likes of Sean Bean (Broken, Game of Thrones), Adrian Lester (Riviera, Hustle), Phoebe Fox (Blue Iguana, Intrigo: Samaria), and Malachi Kirby (Black Mirror, Roots). Looks like one to keep an eye on.
