About your performers:
ANISH SHAH: Anish is a Yale MBA and McKinsey consultant who walked away from the corporate world for comedy. He has performed all around the world, made dozens of television appearances, and most recently headlined the legendary Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. Earlier this year, he headlined the wildly successful 5-month, 50 city tour, “B-School Made Me Funny!” Anish has also appeared in commercials for Lufthansa, NFL and Marriott
Rajiv Satyal: Rajiv is the fun-size Indian comedian from Cincinnati, Ohio, whose witty, universal, and TV-clean act resonates around the world by covering everything from racial issues to soap bottles to his favorite topic — himself. This former UC engineer and P&G marketer has repeatedly opened for Dave Chappelle, Tim Allen, Kevin Nealon and Russell Peters.
Adam Burke: His absurdist, verbose comedy is long on metaphor and analogy and short on common sense. Burke released his debut album “Universal Squirrel Theory” on in 2012.
Asif Ali: His trademark stage personality and storytelling performance has been featured at the FOX Showcase and CBS Sketch Showcase. He’s also starred on TV shows such as Modern Family, NCIS, Up All Night, and The Young and the Restless.
Prashant Venkataramanujam: Since his award winning performance taking 1st place at the Great American Comedy Festival, Prashant has been tearing up the L.A. comedy scene, while performing all over the country.
Manoj and Harshil: Penn Masala is one of the most legendary music groups in the country. They’ve performed at the White House, The Kennedy Center, and for huge crowds around the world. Their lead singers, Manoj and Harshil, are coming into New York for a special 1-night only amazing performance at our show.
Bobby Rehani and Amrish Dias: New York’s hottest real estate broker (Bobby) and baddest financier (Amrish) have become mainstays at International Incident. Every show they embarrass themselves and delight the crowd with hilarious sketches that are always the talk of the show.
