Papa CJ and Friends' featuring Rajiv Satyal, Azhar Usman & Hari Kondabolu

NEVER BEFORE have four international headliners of Indian origin been on the same stage. THIS SHOW WAS NOT TO BE MISSED. I saw the show in Epicentre, Gurgaon. Throughout the show I was laughing so much. It was hilarious. I just loved it.

Indian stand-up comedian of international repute, Papa CJ, introduced three of his friends from the US comedy circuit. 

RAJIV SATYAL has repeatedly opened for Dave Chappelle, Kevin Nealon, Tim Allen, Daniel Tosh, and also for Russell Peters in sold-out theaters across the U.S.A.

AZHAR USMAN is the co-founder of the wildly popular “Allah Made Me Funny—Official Muslim Comedy Tour,” which has toured over 20 countries. India's very own PAPA CJ was recently called the #1 stand-up comedian in India by the Times of India and Toastmaster International magazine called him one of the most influential comedians around the world.

HARI KONDABOLU has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and been on Comedy Central multiple times. He was also part of the 2007 HBO US Comedy Arts Festival and has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. His humor often centers on social issues such as poverty, racism, and a rejection of Indian stereotypes seen in media.

In case you missed yesterday, they are performing in DLF Golf Club in Gurgaon tonight again. i.e 21st Jan 2012.
