1st Aug 2018 - 26th Aug 2018

Pleasance That - Pleasance Courtyard


Suitable for ages 14 and above

How does a man still under the British influence survive in ‘New India’? Nobody knows… least of all him. Join one of India’s top comics for his Fringe debut, on a journey to understanding the original Brexit.

‘Incredible. A mind-bogglingly funny and necessary take on the British Empire in India’ (Financial Times).

‘India's most intelligent comedian.’ (New York Times).
