He’s also the founder of “East India Comedy”, India’s busiest comedy company that has over a 100 shows planned across 6 cities in the next year. Recently, he also displayed the fact that he can read and write by releasing his debut novel, “The Wednesday Soul.”
His material has been described as, “over the top”, “manic”, and occasionally, “marginally unstable.” Join us as he covers his love for Indians of all types, why women are better than Indian men and his great, grand love for chai.
Kunal Rao is Sorabh’s opening Comedian, a regular at The Comedy Store and one of India’s top comedians. He’s also widely renowned as the world’s hottest Chartered Accountant – a title he wears with shocking pride. He’s also a vegetarian, social media expert and owner of the kinniest legs in all of India. Check out his material about non-vegetarian racism, his love for mannequins and why hugging him comes at a price.
This time The Pant will leave a blazing trail of fiery comments and loads of laughter in its wake as he brings you his “Pant on Fire” special. The 90 minute stand-up comedy show that answers existential questions such as why cricket ads should be banned, why wives need batteries, why Malyalis are culture chameleons and why Tiger Woods needs to start bottling his own beverage. Along with the stand up, the show also features two of Sorabh’s most famous characters: the infamous Sorabh Pun (widely voted as, “the world’s worst comedian”) and Pantjot Singh Sidhu (who does Sidhu’s similes better than Sidhu himself).
He’s also toured Dhaka (no, seriously!) and will be having his first show in Dubai on Thursday, June 21st, 2012and beyond from November onward with the international edition of Pant on Fire.
