Afghanistan is Not Funny
Author(s): Henry Naylor

Running time: 1h 10min approx
A close-shave with a landmine, menaced by a warlord and abducted by the Mujahideen: this is the extraordinary, true story of a British comedian and photographer in war-torn Afghanistan.
In 2002, whilst researching a comedy, triple Fringe First winner Henry Naylor and two-time Scottish Feature Photographer of the Year Sam Maynard went to the Afghan Warzone…
…it was a trip which changed both their lives and their art.
Performed by Naylor himself, in front of Maynard’s pictures, this docu-play goes back to the start of a modern tragedy.
