Zakir created waves in 2016 with his appearance on AIB Diwas, as he swiftly went on to become what AIB founder Tanmay Bhat describes as “The biggest stand-up comedy act in India. Period”. A writer by profession, this 'Confused Desi' serves his take on modern India, with a hard-to-resist style of humour that'll have you nodding your heads and clapping as you’ll relate to everything he says. One of the few comedians to consistently sell out venues across the continent with his hard-to-resist rustic humor, Zakir Khan’s phenomenal rise as one of the most popular comedians in the country is nothing short of extraordinary. His Shows are as intimate as a personal conversation. From his break-up stories to his poetry, nazm and shayari, one doesn’t watch Zakir to laugh at his jokes, but to laugh with him on incidents that made him the man he is. Called a pioneer of storytelling in Indian comedy, his take on modern India will have you nodding and clapping repeatedly. One of the only comics to India to do stand-up almost entirely in Hindi, Zakir is indeed a unique act, and it's easy to see why. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=308250 The Town Hall The Town Hall
