From the same company that presented the mega popular “Bollywood Wedding” & the “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Chicken” shows comes a sizzling night of stand-up comedy. “Stand Up! The Original Tandoori Kings of Comedy” will be an unforgettable evening of in-your-face hilarity featuring two phenomenally funny gents: Sunee Dhaliwal and Hollywood Harv.
Both comics have played to sold-out houses in multiple cities (Hollywood Harv recently performed to a capacity crowd at Vancouver’s Vogue Theatre), and, thanks to the reach of Comedy Central and YouTube videos, they’ve each built legions of adoring fans across the globe.
Expect irreverence. Expect sidesplitting observations. Expect clichés to be tossed and turned until nothing and everything makes sense. Expect to laugh until you cry. Expect the unexpected!
(And expect it all in English; this show is for everyone – well, everyone over the age of 18, that is).
Our extremely funny and talented MC, Munish Sharma of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Chicken! fame, will kick off the show with his own unique brand of smart and yummy stand-up. Sharma will be followed by Clifford Prang: the funny gora as he likes to call himself, and then the lone female comedian of the night: award-winning comedienne Ash Dhawan!
You can’t have a stand-up show without some music. We’ve got Vancity’s legendary party rocker DJ 151 from Decibel Entertainment spinning some of the hottest Hip Hop, RnB, Bhangra and Bollywood tunes on the planet in between sets.
Sunee Dhaliwal may just be the fastest rising star on the Canadian comedy scene. His professionalism and reputation for being both a club and crowd favourite has already landed him opening spots for top Headliners like Charlie Murphy, Sugar Sammy and Jo Koy along with showcases for Just for Laughs and MTV. Sunee has recorded for XM Radio and done his very own Comedy Now! special on CTV.
Hollywood Harv knew he wanted to be a performer when he was growing up in Richmond, BC. Since then, Harv has enthralled audiences with his wit, charm, and humour, and performed at well over 400 events throughout the United States, England, India and across Canada. In addition to stand up comedy, he has also MC’d concerts for Destiny’s Child, Beastie Boys, Black Eyed Peas and JT Money. He was one of the few sold out shows at Vancouver’s 2010 Global Comedyfest, which also featured world-renowned comedians Carol Burnett, Steve Martin, Pauly Shore and Tom Arnold.
MUNISH SHARMA (MC)
Munish Sharma is an Actor/Writer/Producer and he is very proud to be working with South Asian Arts again. Munish also hosts The Gastown Caberat, a monthly variety show at Guilt and Co. Next March, he’ll appear in Iceland, a play by Nicolas Billion showing at Presentation House.
Cliff Prang is a nice guy, a funny guy, and a white guy. There is no arguing at least one of those points. Cliff is alumni to the Canadian Improv Games, The VancouverTheatreSports League, the Panic Squad Improv Comedy and currently performs as Funny Brothers Improv with his Brother-in-Law. He’s a soon-to-be talk radio host on the Funny Gora show on CIVL 101.7 FM and has also created BUDDY GUYS, a saucy and spicy New Comedy show featuring Sunee Dhaliwal as part of CBC’s ComedyCoup.
In the short three years she’s been performing, Ash Dhawan has made quite an impression with her “OMG, did she just say that?” style of comedy. In 2011, she won the”Funniest Comic With A Day Job contest; this year, she won the Funniest Female contest.
