I was there at Comedy Masala 2, earlier this year and kasam lelo, this was the most I laughed in an hour or two ever in my life!
Stand up comedians from all over the world have been coming to Pakistan regularly now, courtesy team comedy masala international, giving some insanely funny nights to us.
This time its 5 shows on 13th, 14th and 15th of July in the city of lights and tickets are available at 021 – 3890 9914.
So what is Comedy Masala and what is making them come back to Karachi:
After reaching No. 1 status in SE Asia, being listed as one of the Top 10 comedy nights in the world (TRAVELLER, AUSTRALIA), and being featured on COMEDY CENTRAL ASIA, Singapore’s biggest & most popular weekly stand-up comedy show, COMEDY MASALA, launched in PAKISTAN in Feb 2017, with the aim to make Pakistan one of the world’s leading hubs for international touring comedians. Masala’s vision is to bring the world’s best international stand-up comedians to Pakistan, and to launch a grass roots initiative, via weekly open mics and workshops, to develop and nurture a local stand-up comedy scene under the guidance of experienced comedians from across Europe, Asia, North America & Australia.
Who is performing at Comedy Masala III:
STEPHEN CARLIN, who is one of the most intelligent comics you’ll see, and Stewart Lee calls him ‘one of the ten best ever’. Then there’s REX NAVARRETE, he’s a comedy veteran and has been tearing it up across North America for over 30 years. Rex has 4 live full-length comedy albums to his name (avail on iTunes), and is widely regarded as the Premiere Filipino American comedian. Last, but by no means least, is JONATHAN ATHERTON – the Australian comic who speaks more languages than your average U.N. delegate. Affectionately known as ‘The Comedy Guru’, Jonathan is one of the most travelled & experienced comedians, having performed for over 25 years across most countries on the planet. All 5 shows will feature the same line up, and will be hosted by Comedy Masala founder & Pakistani comedian, UMAR RANA.
I have gotten my tickets and will be attending on 15th, although I love attending the first day first show, but chao, I m sure its still going to be great 🙂 See you there maybe ?
