The Butter Chicken gang is back in I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Chicken: The Fellowship of the Butter Chicken, an all-new live sketch comedy show where the laughs are served with a pinch of ethnic and a generous dollop of Bollywood spice. Join Vancouver’s South Asian comedy heroes in their quest to make audiences laugh, cheer, tap their feet, applaud wildly, and laugh some more.
Presented by South Asian Arts and Bollywood Shenanigans, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Chicken: The Fellowship of the Butter Chicken dishes up a fresh spin on the laugh-till-you-cry, edgy, racy, fast-paced, yummy comedy that previously satisfied the palates of thousands of theatre-goers in I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Chicken!—The Best Of Show, The Butter Chicken Reloaded, and The Butter Chicken’s Back… Alright.
The venue is CBC’s Studio 700, and the players—the fellowship of comedy heroes—are Kulveer Taggar, Aga Postawska, Munish Sharma, Leena Manro, Sandhya Sharma, and Kallol Mitra. Race, sex, diaspora, parental expectations, village life: no topic is out of bounds for these comedy crusaders as they act, sing, dance, and Bollywood their brains out in brand-new skits penned by Munish Sharma and Leena Manro.
