ZAKIR KHAN @ Royal Albert Hall
Zakir Khan is one of the most loved and celebrated stand-up comedians in India. From winning the title of ‘India’s Best Stand Up’ in a 2012 Comedy Central show to selling 100,000 tickets across 72 cities in 2019 alone, his has been an incredible journey.
Zakir’s approach to comedy is anecdotal, personal and heartfelt, and his delivery poetic and rustic at the same time. His appeal lies in his relatability – he has often said he used humour as a shield when bullied as a child, and his stories are punctuated with phrases that have become catchphrases, including the iconic ‘sakht launda’.
