Description

What are the ways of being in the world – can you be here now, or are you busy then? In his Fringe debut, India's stand-up star Kanan examines the many ways of being, the very idea of being and the ultimately unsatisfactory nature of experience. With jokes. Yes. This is a comedy show, and if you believe descriptions, it's very, very funny. Following previous special Is This It? (it was), Kanan returns with What Is This? Specials: Yours Sincerely (Netflix), Keep It Real (Amazon Prime). Most Outstanding Show nominee, Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2024.
