BBC sitcom Citizen Khan is taking to the stage next year for a series of live shows.

Now in its fourth series on BBC One, creator Adil Ray is bringing self-appointed community leader Mr Khan to the stage for three arena performances in May 2016.

Citizen Khan: They All Know Me!, will open on 5 May at Wembley’s SSE Arena, followed by Birmingham’s Genting Arena on 6 May and the Manchester Arena on 7 May. Tickets are on sale now.

Currently the most watched comedy show on British television, Citizen Khan has garnered four awards from the Royal Television Society, including Best Performance in a Comedy.

Ray said: “Asalaam Alaikum and hello how do you do to all you non-Muslim peoples. Mr Khan Community leader speaking. I’m very pleased to be able to get the chance to meet you all in my busy schedule. I will be informing you all on how to deal with all areas of British life; family, fashion, food, school, and of course being a good Muslim.

“Oh Twaddi! This is a family show so bring everybodies but please, if you are Indian (or ginger) you must sit at the back and don’t drink too much! This is a very special moment in the British calendar just like Justin Biebers and One Direction.

“As a Muslim we love to follow One Direction – towards Mecca. I look forward to answering any questions on the night too and if you’re lucky I’ll have a photo taken with you unless you’re from the tax office or immigration then you can stay at home.”
