Theatre -> 'Gurus of Comedy' US Tour

April 12 - May 20 2006

Gurus of Comedy 2006 logoThe Gurus of Comedy, only national tour of South Asian Stand-up Comedy, returns from April 12 to May 2006. Showcasing some of the funniest South Asian talents, this uproariously entertaining show will have you laughing on the floor and features Paul Varghese, Raj Sharma, Tapan Trivedi and Dan Nainan.


Paul Varghese's got a slow, relaxed delivery and some great material. In one of his routines, he mimes his Malayalee parents' thick accents and his 'super-Christian' dad's fascination with crosses. Growing up was a struggle, Varghese has roving gangs of Malayalee doctors and aeronautical engineers brandishing slide rules in da hood. So, to stay off the streets, he kept it real at comedy clubs.


Raj Sharma was born and raised in Texas. At a very young age, he learned that a sense of humor would take him a long way. He blends his traditional upbringing with his western influence like no other. In four short years, after his mother's dreams of him being a doctor crashed and burned, he has performed with some of the nation's most popular comics as well as some of the most popular venues. He is sure to hit a nerve with everyone on the audience.


Tapan Trivedi grew up in India. When he was 22 years old, he came to the US. Besides blondes, redheads and premarital sex, he discovered Stand-up Comedy. Pushed to the stage on the insistence of his friends, he went up on stage during an open mike where he killed his first time and then bombed 7 times immediately after. Addicted to laughter, he kept plugging on till he became a finalist in a funniest person competition. Constantly winning audiences over with his brilliant writing and hilarious observations of life as an Indian immigrant in the USA.


Daniel Nainan left his job as a junior executive at Intel Corporation in 2001 to pursue stand-up comedy full time. Since then, he has performed with Jerry Seinfeld and Bob Saget, and most recently toured the country with HBO comedian Robert Schimmet. His television credits include Comedy Central and NBC's 'Last Comic Standing' and Nickelodeon's 'Gotcha'. He is also a top voice-over on radio stations all across America.
