While elaborating about the two Stand-Up Comedians, Chairman of Nagpur Round Table 83 Tabler Anurag Pashine said about Zakhir Khan that this ‘Confused Desi’serves up his take on modern India with a hard to resist rustic humor that’ll have you nodding your heads and clapping as you relate to everything he says. Watching Zakir perform is pretty much like sitting in the comfort of your own living room with your friends and you have this one extremely funny guy who’s pulling out hilarious stories one by one. In me my dad and his girlfriends Zakir talks about his relationship with his Mom, Dad, his dynamics with the world during his childhood, teenage and adulthood –and one can relate to it easily because at some point in life it has happened with you too! Some characters that he brings out in his anecdotes seem to have been pulled out from your own life. 

Tabler Anurag Pashine claimed that Daniel Fernandes is a Stand-up Comedian, musician, anchor and producer and is a regular at Comedy Clubs like the ‘Canvas Laugh Club’, ‘The Comedy Store’and corporate events across India and abroad. He began his comedy career in Mumbai in 2011 after attending a Metallica concert convinced him that the stage is where he belongs. He has also performed overseas in Amsterdam, Utrecht, Antwerp, Munich and Singapore. His material is a unique blend of everyday life, relationships, current affairs, with a dash of crowd work thrown in with good effect. When he isn’t on stage, Daniel heads production and programming at Weirdass Comedy, India’s premier comedy consultancy and creators of India’s largest comedy festival, The Weirdass Pajama!
