Chandrashekar Angadi and Subeer Josh


Amit Tandon is known as ‘The Married Guy’ of stand up comedy. After 2 kids and one marriage, he realised it couldn’t get any worse and took to comedy.

Six years ago, Tandon started to run his own HR consultancy firm and had never considered comedy as a career. It was out of sheer boredom that he went for an open-mic night for the first time. 

After two-and-a-half years of open mic nights, he realised that people liked what he was bringing to the stage. Six years on, after 20 million video views and 1,000 shows across fifteen countries, Amit has climbed the charts to become one of India’s best known observational comics.

Tandon says, “The real masala lies in the lives of middle class Indians. I come from a middle class family myself and the constant struggles in our homes are hilarious. We are not poor and we will never be rich, for we spend more time in managing the money we have than in earning more!”

The opening acts will be presented by local, upcoming comedians Subeer Josh and Chandrashekar Angadi.

Subeer Josh is born and brought up in Qatar and has handled both the business world and entertainment with equal passion and keenness.

Subeer is an observer of the world seeing it in much detail, depth and interconnectedness, you see a new world through his eyes when he takes the stage!

Chandrashekar Angadi’s latent talent was honed at the Toastmaster’s Club Doha. He is a passionate public speaker and is thoroughly enjoys making people laugh.
