Background:  Yasser is a larger than life asian zhemale (allegedly), a genetic experiment gone wrong between a former British Prime Minister, a Victor Kiam Remington electric shaver and combined electro-larynx voice machine and a half-eaten sanitary towel belonging to TV cook Madhur Jaffrey but found in the possession of Robert Mugabe at the high-security Showbusiness Disease Centre in Hastings.  Spending the first fourteen years of his life living in a Cornetto wafer cone, Yasser was raised by The Two Bonnies (Tyler and Langford);  he was taught by Bruce Forsyth, Frederick Forsyth and John Forsyth's wig (Blake Carrington from Dynasty) the arts of creating catchphrases, thriller writing whilst spying for MI6 and acting.  No-one knows why.  He has shifty large eyes and is looked after by several burkha clad animals posing as wives.

He married his first wife once, his second wife twice, and his third wife three times.  Then he spoiled that arithmetic progression, but created a different symmetry.   He went back and married his second wife a third time, and concluded by marrying his fourth wife once.  Following an industrial accident after being a cock double for Liam Neeson for eight years, Yasser is now living as a clockwork gypsy fortune telling machine, pregnant with triplets (one of each) in Edwardian London and living a double life as a cereal killer: 'The Pasteurised Pansy Porridge Pouncer' of Old Laandan Taan performing unnatural acts with unsuspecting crumpets, shredded wheat and hot plates of pie & mash.

Yasser is currently writing a TV soap opera about a rapping Yorkshire community of black & white minstrels called Eminemmmerdale but has to wait for the invention of television in 32 years before it can be broadcast.
