“Comedy is best when its new and fresh. Kanan, Varun, Sahil, and Anuvab, are among the best comics India has to offer, and will be a treat for Malaysian audiences thanks to their unique take on universal issues. Their one-of-a-kind style and content, transcends age, gender, and age, perfect for Malaysia’s multi-cultural social landscape,” said CEO of Phoenix PR, Vinodh Menon.

These maharajas have garnered a global appeal, having performed across Asia, America, and Europe. Kanan Gill, arguably the ‘sexiest comedian’ in India, is among the biggest names in the business. He has over 1,000 sold-out shows to his name, starred in a Bollywood film, and released a one-hour comedy special, “Keep It Real” on Amazon Prime. Another household name in India’s comedy circuit, is none other than funnyman and Bollywood actor, Varun Thakur.

Sahil Shah has been dubbed by many as India’s next comedic superstar. He has taken his brand of jokes to various corners of the globe including, New York, London, Singapore, and Dubai. With over 900 shows under his belt, and counting, Sahil is a rising star and one to lookout for. Last but not least is a comedian, writer and among ‘Mumbai’s Top 20 to Watch’, Anuvab Pal. Hailed as “India’s Most Intelligent Comedian” by The New York Times, Anuvab’s hilarious take on the nuances of Indian culture and history is not to be missed.

India’s comic scene is an advanced one, offering various styles to local audiences from stand-up, improv, to sketch shows.
