The Comedy Store (U.K’s leading comedy club which celebrates thirty years this May) kicked off its tour in Mumbai last week. Don Ward (Cofounder of The Comedy Store) chose three world class stand up comedians who performed over the weekend in Mumbai at NCPA and the ITC Grand Maratha. Comedians Sean Meo (MC), Paul Tonkinson and Ian Stone had the crowd in splits apparently. Guests included Imran Khan (still grumpy but gorgous!) and girlfriend Avantika Malik, Vir Das, Raell Padamsee, Anuradha Menon and of course Deepak Bedi (CEO, Horseshoe Entertainment.)
“With 2009 being our 30th anniversary, this tour is a great way to further popularize a concept that is gripping India very fast. The Comedy Store Tour brings you a world class stand up comedy team that will put together a show with an Indian relevance.” Says Don Ward.
