Desi Laughs presents the SAKHT LAUNDA Zakir Khan - A cartoon by heart, comedian by nature, a writer by profession and performer by birth.
Zakir khan is one of the brightest comedians in India and was the winner of Comedy Central's hunt for Best Stand-Up Comic of India and Foster's Lol Evenings. A writer by profession, this 'Confused Desi' serves his take on modern India, with a hard to resist rustic humour that'll have you nodding your heads and clapping as you’ll relate to everything he says.
Satirical comedy. Lea Belmont is a novelist. Victor Pontier is an editor. She is idealistic and seductive. He is cynical and arrogant. But if tonight they have dinner together, it is because the beautiful Lea absolutely needs money for an operation for her seriously ill son, and the only publisher willing to publish her work is Victor Pontier.
He is ready to publish her ... but under a certain condition.
Aisi Taisi Democracy is the coming together of three prolific talents, Stand-up comedian and social-satirist Sanjay Rajoura, stand-up comedian, writer and lyricist Varun Grover and Bass Player and Vocalist of legendary band “Indian Ocean” Rahul Ram.
India is a nation of idiosyncrasies and permanent hysteria. Our reaction to a cricket GOD retiring is more vocal than the science community’s was when they discovered the God particle. We are traveling the world, but not without our prejudices & theplas (Indian snack). And in this crazy transition phase, from 3rd world to 2nd, we are the proverbial gawaachi gaay (lost cow) of the times.
And to make sense of these confusing times where a fairness cream is cheaper than water & Rahul Dravid retired before L.K.Advani; Sanjay Rajoura, Varun Grover and Rahul Ram come together for their outrageously irreverent comedy special ‘Aisi Taisi Democracy’
Expect pointed barbs at all that is weird, funny, surreal, and downright doped out in our bhaarat-varsh (India). Politically incorrect, full of personal stories of growing up in the pre-and-post liberalization era and a no-holds-barred look at the “Idea of India” – Aisi Taisi Democracy promises to make you laugh non-stop while raising some thought provoking questions.
The irreverent storytelling by Sanjay and Varun is interspersed with songs by Rahul, along with constant banter throughout the show.
ATD was invited to perform at the SAARC Summit at Kathmandu Nepal in December 2014. This is the first time a comedy act has been invited to this prestigious forum. The audiences included heads of state, students and thinkers from all SAARC nations.
H2 are delighted to be back in Dubai for their 10th Annual Pantomime Season with their spectacular magic adventure Peter Pan, told in classic British pantomime style!
Peter Pan is the tale of a magical young boy who never grows up, a boy who remains a child with a simplistic outlook on life, a life full of fun and adventure. Peter’s one aim is to outwit the evil but pathetic Captain Hook and the story recounts the many adventures that Peter, Wendy, Michael, John and the Lost Boys have as they encounter Tiger Lily and her Indians, the bumbling Pirates, and of course Hook. There is plenty of laughter with the antics of the pirates and an uneasy excitement when Wendy and the boys are captured and held on the pirate ship The Jolly Roger, but all is saved by the skill of Peter Pan as he outwits Captain Hook and condemns him to a watery grave and a final encounter with the infamous crocodile!
With Sumptuous sets, colourful costumes, musical magic, fabulous flying, comedy capers, and full of audience participation, this show is the ideal festive treat for all the family!
