CULTURE / COMEDY
Şaban will be flying the flag for Turks during this Eurovision comedy special at Funny Cunths – a free weekly stand-up night. Since the 31-year-old took the Comedy Store King Gong award in December, he’s had a host of bookings, his hilarious deadpan stories about his Turkish roots proving a big hit with audiences. We may no longer be the butt of Eurovision jokes after winning in 2003 with Sertab Erener, but national pride is still at stake with comedians representing countries, music and silly voting. Go support!
