Durban, catch international comedic talent Rajiv Satyal for one night only on Friday the 20th of July. Famous for his "I am Indian" video which went viral on all social platforms and has had over 50 million views which was shared by Bollywood stars and was used to introduce the Indian Prime Minister in Shanghai and Dubai, he now brings his "I am Indian Comedy Show" to South Africa, with shows planned for Cape Town and Durban.
Satyal is no stranger to comedy in the US, as he has performed with heavy weights such as Russell Peters and Dave Chappelle just to name a few. He also has done TV appearances and known for his clean comedy which has made him one of the most versatile comedians to work with today. Rajiv's debut to comedy was an unusual one, with him performing for at the time, world number one tennis player Pete Sampras in a locker room. He performs weekly at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood and has a host of videos which have been featured on various media outlets such as Netflix, NBC, Nickelodeon, Times Now, Zee TV, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Huffington Post to name a few.
Speaking to IOL media, Satyal had this to say. " I am super excited to perform in South African and more so in Durban, a place I've wanted to visit for a long time, particularly because of its connection to Indians and Indian culture. I am sure I will have a great time performing for Durbanites". Joining Rajiv on stage will be Durban's very own Masood Boomgaard who recently enjoyed success in Dubai, Australia and the UK where he performed on the London West End.
