The night will be hosted by Australian comedian Jessica Pratt, who worked as head writer for the web series’ Almost Viral and Breaking News – A Recap, as well as contributing to the online comedy writing platform Comedywire.com.
Pratt will be introducing the Dubai crowd to a host of stellar comedians from all over the world.

He moved to Dubai in 2015 and won the Dubai Comedy Festival’s Beat the Gong contest that year. He also toured the States with his Comedy's Best Kept Secret show and opened for Hannibal Buress on his Comedy Camisado Tour.
