Description

Anuvab Pal is trying to understand a thousand years of this bewildering British Isle through his Indian lens, deploying respectable tools he's mastered like corruption, deceit and fake news to find whether they exist in this land. And thereby bring two great cultures closer. Much needed in a fractured world. As seen on BBC's The Big Asian Stand Up and The New Year International Comedy Show on BBC World Service. 'India's most intelligent comedian' (New York Times). 'This isn't just witty humour – it's genius' ***** (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine). 'Brilliant' **** (List).

Although the show is held in a lecture-like setting, it works well for Pal’s comedic style as he is able to converse with the crowd effortlessly. The use of disco lighting and music are immaculate and added to the experience. Overall, Anuvab Pal’s Democracy and Disco Dancing is entertaining and bound to have the crowd in laughter throughout the hour. Be prepared for some disco beats and amusing dancing!
