Amir Khan. Photo: Courtesy of Amir Khan Amir Khan (@AmirKhanStuff) is a comedian based in New York City but originally from Miami. He performs with his improv team, Promises, at UCB Hell’s Kitchen in New York. He also performs monthly with the Asian AF New York team at UCB. This week, Amir and I talked supportive improv teams, young moms, and being a full-on dumbass. I think publicly lying to make yourself seem happy is so flickin’ funny. I included this tweet as a favorite because it is me just being a full-on dumbass — it is truly just me speaking pure nonsense, but I’m positive you can imagine the type of person saying it. One of my favorite types of characters to play in improv scenes is a person who is just so happy that they stop making sense. And in a way, that is me!!!!! (I’m not happy hehehe) What made you decide to pursue comedy? That being said, I have always been a weirdass and loved comedy, and I was working for a small graphic-design … [Read more...] about Amir Khan Doesn’t Worry About Being Relatable

Sadiq Khan is to make a campaign for wide-ranging rent control the key plank of his 2020 re-election bid, asking the government to give the London mayoralty the power to combat soaring rents in the capital. The mayor of London is to work out a blueprint for an overhaul of the laws for private renters to allow new restrictions on rent to be imposed – a change he could not make without legislation by central government. Khan told the Guardian the arguments for rent control were “overwhelming and Londoners overwhelmingly want it to happen”, but said he could not make the change within his current remit. “London is in the middle of a desperate housing crisis that has been generations in the making,” Khan said. “I am doing everything in my power to tackle it – including building record numbers of new social homes – but I have long been frustrated by my lack of powers to help private renters.” Recent YouGov research by City Hall, … [Read more...] about Sadiq Khan makes rent control key plank of mayor re-election bid

As a Muslim, I have followed with pride Sadiq Khan’s election as London mayor and his political acumen in just his first few days in office – even though he is a Blairite, and pro-Hillary to boot. I was even prouder of Londoners, who showed how deeply inclusive they remain despite the Isis-induced Islamophobia that rages around us. But the new mayor’s assertion “I’ve achieved more in these seven days than in the last six years in opposition” is troubling (Khan: Blair’s strategy key to 2020 victory, 14 May). Everyone achieves much more in power than in opposition. Power opens up the possibility of major changes, both good and bad. But power is not the only factor instrumental in creating change. In fact it’s what one does in “opposition” that has historically paved the way for real change. Humanity’s progress has resulted primarily from the struggles of those who fought for change against entrenched power. Khan has … [Read more...] about Winning London for Labour is one thing, Mr Khan.
