Vir Das

DUBAI 23 November 2019: Dubai will welcome internationally acclaimed Indian stand-up comedian, Bollywood actor and columnist, Vir Das.

Colors Live presents Comic On Nights’ Vir Das’s Loved Tour brought to you by the Junction Live! and BookMyShow.

The first Indian to land a Netflix special – Abroad Understanding – Das is known for tongue-in-cheek, rather satirical humour, which has the ability to draw spontaneous laughter out of his audience. Having performed over 1,000+ shows in 32 cities across the world, the comedian, whose shows are in English language, is well-versed in engaging people from a cross section of nationalities and backgrounds, courtesy the versatile range of topics that he covers during his performances.

The comedian-actor will be performing in Dubai Opera on February 8th. The show will be hosted by Dubai based comedian Alfaaz who completes 10 years of doing StandUp with this dream gig.

Alfaaz, Founder of Comic On Nights’: “For people who follow comedy or Bollywood, Vir Das needs no introduction. His impactful performance both on screen and on stage, in India and abroad, has made him a much-loved celebrity. His humour is quite evolved and in a class of its own, with as much a natural ability to take a dig on himself as on a political personality. We take pride in bringing such talent to the UAE with complete assurance that it will be a hit with the audience”.

Rajiv Nigam and Shyam Rangeela to perform in Dubai

Comic satire will be the name of the game for Dubai audience as it gears up to watch the performance of the irrepressible duo, Rajiv Nigam and Shyam Rangeela.

The laugh-out-loud riot will be a treat for those who love hilarious take on politics and social issues. The show will begin at 8PM while the gates will open at 6:30 PM. Tickets for the show start at AED 69 and can be booked at Platinumlist Dubai.

Nigam had garnered immense popularity for his show ‘Bohot huva Sammaan’ (Enough of Respect) where his astute observation of Indian politics is laced with hilarity but deeply imbedded with a thoughtful message. Rangeela’s claim to fame, on the other hand, is his classic and spot-on mimicry of Indian politicians, particularly, PM Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi.

Ashwin Sancheti, Managing Partner, Spotlight Entertainment said: “Politics has always proved to be a fodder for comedians, but not everyone can carry it off successfully. We’re very happy to bring such a talented duo to Dubai who are not only adept at spotting humour in the ordinary situations, but presenting it in a manner that leaves one in splits. I can safely guarantee you that the Dubai audience is in for a treat with something for everyone.”

It’s a Viu Event, organised by Spotlight Entertainment who is known to bring a variety of entertainment shows to the UAE.
