Comedy show casts aside Western reliance for one night
Time Out Dubai staff
If you ever hear one murmur of criticism about Dubai’s biggest comedy promoter, it’s that it tends to concentrate on a Western-focused crew – an alternating line-up of Brits, Aussies and Irish. Not tonight, though: for one night only, the team has thrown its regular touring schedule aside for a one-off bill of India’s finest funnymen.
Topping the lot is Rohan Joshi, a former journalist who’s now a member of Weirdass Comedy, India’s first and foremost comedy consultancy, improv troupe the Cardinal Bengans, and a humour columnist for the Mid-Day, one of Mumbai’s largest tabloids. Also sharing jokes will be scriptwriter Anuvab Pal (pictured), best known for the award- winning Loins of Punjab, and improv-heavy Tanmay Bhat.
