The Sudanese diaspora has been instrumental in achieving a successful Sudanese revolution. One of the most active communities has been the British-Sudanese community. And you cannot talk about the British-Sudanese community without talking about Ola Labib. Labib is a 30-year-old clinical pharmacist by day and a stand-up comedian by night based in the UK. ‘Comedian. Black, female, Muslim aka a walking hate crime,’ says the biography of Labib on social media, highlighting how her identity plays a significant role on who she is and what she does.
