Managed and promoted by Spotlight Entertainment, Viu Comedy Box Office will be the ultimate stress-buster for families and friends, with audiences destined to have their sides in stitches, thanks to unforgettable individual performances by eight internationally acclaimed Hinglish standup comedians – including Nitinn R Miranni, Rajat Chauhan, Daniel Fernandes Aakash Mehta, Anshu Mor, Anu Menon, Vijay Yadav, and Abhishek Walia – all of whom will be at their wittiest best, and performing live in Dubai for the first time this year.

Featuring a fantastic three-in-one combo package of cricket, Hinglish humour, live-bands and in-house DJ, Viu Comedy Box Office will take place from September 25 to November 13, 2020, every Friday, from 9pm onwards at Joker Street night club, Orchid Vue Hotel, Bur Dubai.

A treasure trove of wit and humour, award-winning Nitinn R Miranni is renowned for his ‘glocal’ sense of humour and his ability to make anyone laugh, while Rajat Chauhan will tickle your funny bones with his brand of observational humor based on the commonplace aspects of everyday life. Aakash Mehta is an all-round entertainer from Mumbai who is in the sole business of making people laugh with his unique perspectives, while Mumbai-based Daniel Fernandes is known for his dark and surreal style of comedy, with references to social issues in India.

Classy, clean and simply hilarious, Anshu Mor is ‘that corporate guy’ who turned into a comedian in his 40s. One of the most popular female comedians on the Indian stand-up scene, Anu Menon, aka Channel V’s Lola Kutty, delivers quick wit, brilliant repartees and subtle humour on everyday situations in life, including life with her mother-in-law.

Vijay Yadav is effortless with his trademark jokes and delicious one-liners that mainly encompass Haryana, Haryanvis, friends and family. Abhishek Walia, the roast master of ‘The Great Indian Laughter Challenge’ is back, to roast his audience to a crisp with his poker-faced humour.

Commenting on the upcoming eight-weekend long Viu Comedy Box Office series, Ashwin Sancheti, Managing Partner of Spotlight Entertainment and Founder of Viu Comedy Box Office, said: “After a highly successful Season 1 in 2019 we are very happy to present Season 2 of the much-loved and highly anticipated series, more so, now, after the authorities lifted restrictions on the hosting of live events in Dubai.
