    The Chuckle Singhs present an evening of entertainment to celebrate Diwali. Join some of the UK's funniest acts for an evening of laughter.

    Chuckle Singhs:
    Chuckle Singhs, Bob & Danny provide banter and audience interaction to entertain and keep any event moving.

    Rahul Kohlir:
    Rahul Kohli is one of the fastest rising act on the circuit. A young geordie asian man combining fierce political satire with surreal storytelling, in just a few short years, his debut solo show: Newcastle Brown Male gained critical acclaim at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival earning him a top pick of both BBC Radio 4 and the Huffington Post. It also gained him radio credits for BBC Radio 4's State of the Nation and BBC Asia Networks Big Asian Comedy Night. On top of this he has gained writing credits for other Radio 4 Shows while performing at some of the biggest clubs around the country from the Stand up North to the Comedy Store down south. In January 2017, Rahul became an award-winning comedian winning the prestigious NATYS, formerly the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year Award.'

    Jay Sodagar:
    Jay terms his comedy as Social Conscience Comedy, this genre underlines observational, political and straight stand-up, and he likes to make people think about his material after they've laughed. He was heavily involved with Comedy Improvisation, as part of the first all Asian Impro Team, which now tours Canada and the US.
    Writing is a passion of Jay's and he has written a material including sketch shows for TV and a feature length film script.
    He also made a short film and entered it into a major short film competition, and made it through to the final.
    In the little spare time he has, Jay teaches stand-up comedy.
    He has appeared everywhere from tiny comedy clubs to large theatres to Television and even around the world (France, Croatia, New York, LA).
    'What night would not be complete without the razor sharp acerbic wit of Jay Sodagar' - BBC
    'Very Very Funny a film-maker in the making' - Jean Lynch (Director of 2 Days Laughter Film Festival)
    'Amusing and Funny' - Time Out Magazine
    'Side-splittingly funny' - Eastern Eye

    Mickey Sharma:
    Mickey Sharma's mix of comedy and another form of artistry (you will see what I mean) make him as unique as he is funny. His high and contagious energy helps him tame any crowd no matter their age, gender, ethnicity or amount of alcohol consumed.
    Mickey is extremely comfortable anywhere on the bill; be it MC, opening or closing. A highly regarded act that will have you trying to copy his catchy material (unsuccessfully) for a long time after seeing him.
    Mickey is an Indian that was born in Pakistan (its true!) in '82 while his father was working for the Indian Embassy. After living in Pakistan, the family moved to Beijing, then Hong Kong, before finally moving back to India in '90, where he lived till 9th September '02, when he moved to Birmingham! Having endured various jobs like a waiter, shelf stacker, camera assistant and Bouncer, Mickey started comedy in July '09 and now works as a full time comic and travels all over the UK and sometimes abroad (Spain, Romania, India, Czech Republic). Amongst other competitions, he was Winner Bath Comedy Festival New Act Competition 2010.
