An all-star cast of Indian comedy superstars are Melbourne-bound, direct from the Bengaluru Comedy Festival!

Featuring the hottest artists from the subcontinent, this vibrant showcase shines a light on the red-hot state of the Indian comedy scene. A one-of-a-kind chance to see the future of world comedy!
Taking to the stage in Melbourne are:
Founding member of ‘East India Comedy’, Sorabh Pant – best known for his incredible energy and overt expressiveness on stage. He has an Amazon Prime comedy special ‘My Dad Thinks He’s Funny’, best-selling novel ‘Pawan: The Flying Accountant’ and 2.5 million Twitter followers under his belt.
Former journalist Aditi Mittal broke ground in the Indian comedy scene being one of the first women to join the circuit, and is now one of its best-known and most-loved performers. She toured her first solo show ‘Things They Wouldn’t Let Me Say’ extensively before the show was picked up by Netflix, and in 2017 her Edinburgh Fringe Festival debut ‘Global Village Idiot’ enjoyed hit seasons in Edinburgh and London.
One of India’s premier comedy stars, Azeem Banatwalla is known for his sharp comedy writing and intelligent stand-up. His observational style and natural charisma landed Azeem his own Amazon Prime comedy special and he is a member of the popular comedy collective ‘East India Comedy’.
Rising star Rahul Subramanian started out with an MBA, before jumping ship to tackle open-mic comedy nights as a New Year’s resolution. His goofy stage persona has won him favour with judges, taking out the Pajama Fest, Canvas Club and East India Comedy Virgin Pants open mic competitions.
