London's West End was set alight tonight, by the sensational Christmas pantomime starring Peter Kay and the hilariously funny Osama Bin Laden.
The panto is loosely based on the tale of Aladdin, a poor Arab, who has hours of fun with a magical lamp.
But the twist in this version of the panto is that the cast are all recruited from a crack Al Qaeda team.
Bin Laden stars as a suicide bomber, cunningly disguised as a woman, in true pantomime tradition.
The witty and fast moving script is laced with acerbic one liners like 'does my bomb look big in this?' and 'Your bombs behind you!'
The cast score highly on the reality measure because they wear their own terrorist clothes and thanks to the intervention of London's mayor, Ken Lividstone, they carry their terrorist guns.
Speaking from his home in Bolton, Lancashire, Peter expressed his profound thanks for being allowed to work with a professional like Bin Laden.
'The way these guys do the killing and terror things is truly amazing,' he stated.
