After a hugely successful launch series of shows in February 2017, Comedy Masala International is back from 27 – 29 April with another diverse line up of international comedians who will perform live in Pakistan for the first time!
Comedy Masala International is proud to announce its second series of shows in April 2017. Comedy Masala will put on 4 shows over 3 nights, and will feature the Season 3 WINNER of the Hit NBC TV Show ‘Last Comic Standing’ – ALONZO BODDEN. Alonzo will perform an extended headline set. Alonzo is a comedy veteran and has been seen on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”, “The Keenen Ivory Wayans” show, “Scary Movie 4” as well as NBC, Showtime & VHI. Alonzo is a comedy rock star, and he’s MIND BLOWINGLY FUNNY! Supporting Alonzo, as opening act, is California native ELI NICOLAS (from Fox TV’s “Laughs”) who is one of the fastest rising stars on the LA comedy circuit, and has performed at world famous clubs like Laugh Factory, The Comedy Store & The Improv. All 4 shows will be hosted by Comedy Masala founder & Pakistani comedian, UMAR RANA.
The COMEDY MASALA INTERNATIONAL franchise will continue to bring live international stand-up comedy to Pakistan, featuring comedians from North America, Europe, Australia and South East Asia. Comedy Masala will expand to Lahore & Islamabad in 2018. Comedy Masala (Singapore) is currently Singapore’s biggest & most popular weekly stand-up comedy show, and was recently listed by Traveller.Com (Australia) as one of the world’s Top Ten comedy nights. Comedy Masala has been aired on popular TV channel, Comedy Central Asia.
Comedy Masala has now successfully expanded to Pakistan with the aim to make Pakistan one of the world’s largest hubs for international comedians touring South & South East Asia. Work is currently in progress to launch a grass roots initiative, via weekly open mics, workshops, and masterclasses run by international comedians, to develop and nurture a local stand-up comedy scene.
