Comedy Masala is one of the most popular weekly show in Singapore, as well as in South East Asia. For all those who are unaware, they can check out my first post about these guys here. Honestly speaking, I wasn’t expecting too much from a new entrant in Pakistani entertainment industry but let me tell you, I attended their first ever show in Pakistan and I was flabbergasted. The laughter ride was almost unending. All 3 comedians performed really well. The audience loved these guys!
I am more than excited for the return of #ComedyMasala in Pakistan for season 2. One of the biggest reason is that we get to have more entertainment options and I hope these comedy nights become a weekly thing or something. You could tell that by the attendance that people crave for such lively performances. The other reason is bringing the international artists to Pakistan. This way, we are helping to create a better image of Pakistan and clear out any misconceptions people might have. It’s sad how media portray us so wrongly so I am happy that we have another platform to showcase our true selves. Thanks to the event organizers, Comedy Masala Singapore & Media Idee for making this possible.
So getting back to season 2, this time the comedian who will be performing is the winner of a hit NBC TV Show ‘Last Comic Standing’ (Season 3), none other than Alonzo Bodden! 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.
So if you missed out the February shows (Seriously? :p) then without any further delay, book your tickets as the opening night’s passes are already sold out. You can either order these online here or call 021 – 38909914. The dates are 27th to 29th April.
