The British Empire gave Anuvab a colonial accent and British values and suddenly left. Now he lives in contemporary India – a billion confident humans, fed on social media and American consumerism and way past their colonial hangover. How does a man still under the British influence survive in ‘New India’? Nobody knows... least of all him. Join one of India’s top comics for his Fringe debut, on a journey to understanding the original Brexit. ‘Incredible. A mind-bogglingly funny and necessary take on the British Empire in India’ (Financial Times). ‘India's most intelligent comedian.’ (New York Times).
