All comedy has the potential to be delicious, but nothing fills the belly quite like a piping hot stand-up routine.
On November 8th, 2014 we tried our hand at stand up comedy for the first time with a brand new show called Stand Up! The Original Tandoori Kings of Comedy, an unforgettable evening of in-your-face hilarity featuring two phenomenally funny gents: Sunee Dhaliwal and Hollywood Harv.
Both comics have played to sold-out houses in multiple cities (Hollywood Harv recently performed to a capacity crowd at Vancouver’s Vogue Theatre), and, thanks to the reach of Comedy Central and YouTube videos, they’ve each built legions of adoring fans across the globe.
Our extremely funny and talented MC, Munish Sharma of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Chicken! fame, kicked off the show with his own unique brand of smart and yummy stand-up. Following Sharma was be Clifford Prang: the funny gora as he likes to call himself, and then the lone female comedian of the night: award-winning comedienne Ash Dhawan!
You can't have a stand-up show without some music, so we had Vancity's legendary party rocker DJ 151 from Decibel Entertainment spinning some of the hottest Hip Hop, RnB, Bhangra and Bollywood tunes on the planet in between sets.
The show played to a capacity crowd of nearly 700 people at the Bell Performing Arts Centre. Watch out for the next one!
