Desi Central’s first UK Comedy Tour

Desi Central

Desi Central has already proved to be a massive hit with comedy fans in the Midlands and is now set for it’s first UK Comedy Tour. The Desi Central Comedy tour visits Glasgow, London, Birmingham and Manchester from 25-28 November 2010.

With two Desi American comedians being flown in to compliment the strong UK lineup this promises to be a unique event appealing to anyone who loves Asian standup comedy.

The Desi Central Comedy Tour 2010 will be hosted by Javier Jarquin who has played and headlined at the biggest clubs in NZ and Australia and has just completed a successful debut season of his solo show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Jav shares his quick-thinking, fast-talking attitude with his audience in a way described as "slick, professional and completely approachable". The Glasgow show only will be hosted by New Zealand born Tarun Mohanbhai who has been doing standup for over ten years and has accumulated some serious air miles by performing all over the world.

The hugely likeable and self assured British comic Hyde Panaser will be joined by American star Dan Nainan who has toured the world with Russell Peters. Dan describes himself as ‘quite possibly the only half-Indian and half-Japanese comedian in the world’. Hyde and Dan are joined by another successful American comic Hari Kondabolu who was described by the Seattle Times as "a young man reaching for the hand-scalding torch of confrontational comics like Lenny Bruce and Richard Pryor." The lineup will be completed by the cool Jay Sodagar who hosted the first two Desi Central shows.

The Desi Central Comedy tour will be recorded and televised by Brit Asia TV and featured in Asiana Magazine.

It promises to deliver a new platform for Asian standup comedy in Britain today. Join some of the best British Asian comedians and their International guests for a show packed with humour from across more than three continents.
