Award-winning comedian Raul Kohli considers himself British Indian or Inglish. He has lived in every corner of this glorious nation and is fascinated by the diversity within Britain – from Chinese kids with John Bishop's accent to white kids from Bradford with Indian accents stronger than his dad's. In this brand-new hour, Raul will ask what it means to be British. ***** (Guardian). 'One of the best comedians in England' (BBC Radio 4). 'The worst' (EdFringeReview.com).

Very small room but just added to the great atmosphere - warm, sincere and very funny guy with depth. Nothing fazes him - I wasnt aware of his comedy before this but am glad I know now - I wish him well for a bright future.

Raul is a supremely intelligent & very funny comedian. He uses his own, often awful, sometimes hilarious, experiences, woven with political & social perception in this show. He draws you in to listen & learn, whilst laughing at the same time. Excellent! Go & see him!

We have seen Raul before and will make sure to try and catch him at next year's Fringe if we're lucky enough to go.

You can tell he really draws on some emotion and personal history for the content of the show at times, and it really is some skill to put the spin of humour on it that he does.

It's a very small room and we had booked tickets, but several people were turned away. I'd say you should book your tickets and advance and still turn up early to get a better seat!

I'd also highly recommend Raul's improv show at Bar 50 where the whole hour is crowd spontaneous crowd interaction.

What a great show! Really engaging performer, coped with lots of interruptions (baby-related and noise bleed) admirably, made serious points but lots of laughs too. It's a tiny room, buy a ticket so you can get in early and sit round the edge, cos the benches are hard! Loved it, and won't be long before he's on the TV I'm sure. Thanks Raul!

First time we’ve ever seen Raul Kohli but it won’t be the last. Funny, engaging, passionate, energetic and extremely observant about the foibles of the English character, Raul’s whole routine is extremely well organised and paced, and even poignant in parts.
But most of all it was fun! Crammed into a tiny room, he literally had the audience *with* him as they were about 1ft away as it turned into a standing room only affair, which only added to the engaging atmosphere.
It’s well worth buying tickets in advance not only because it’s a tiny venue (i.e - living room sized) but I get the feeling that, soon, you’ll not be able to get this close ever again as he’s clearly destined for larger venues.
An all-round professional who is probably also one of the best ad-libbers we’ve seen at the Fringe.
Go see him… you won’t be disappointed! But if you don’t buy tickets, expect to queue. Then again, if you’re truly British, as Raul would observe, you’d probably enjoy that…
