Abu Dhabi (Aletihad) - Famous Indian comedian, poet and actor, Zakir Khan is coming to the Etihad Arena on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi in what promises to be an evening of laughter, wit, and relatable anecdotes on February 18.

The show will be predominantly in Hindi. One of India’s favourite laugh-makers and a renowned name in the comedy circuit, Zakir Khan first captivated audiences’ hearts in 2012 when he clinched the prestigious title of India’s Best Standup Comedian from Comedy Central, a feat that propelled his career into stardom.

His charismatic presence and endearing style of storytelling – especially the one in which he caricatured his character as a boyfriend “sakht launda” – has earned him a dedicated fan base worldwide with fans flocking to his shows wherever he performs.

His is the most unlikely of stories – a college drop-out from Indore whose preferred medium is Hindi, breaking into an English-dominated scene.

From his humble beginnings to selling 100,000 tickets across 72 cities in 2019 alone, his has been an incredible journey, a statement from the organisers Live Nation and Book My Show said. Recognised for his popular stand-up specials such as “Haq Se Single” (2017), “Kaksha Gyarvi” (2018), and “Tathastu” (2022) on Amazon Prime Video, Zakir Khan’s humour resonates deeply with audiences across diverse cultures.

His approach to comedy is anecdotal, personal, and heartfelt; and his delivery is poetic and rustic at the same time. 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.

Apart from his comedic prowess, Khan has ventured into podcasts with “Ummeed on Gaana”, collaborating with fellow comedians to share personal-life incidents. Ticket prices start from Dh215 and are available on Book My Show and Etihad Arena websites.
