Headlines presents Comic On Nights' featuring Papa CJ Live & Uncensored on Friday 19 October 2018.
An entrepreneur by day and entertainer by night, Adnan Nalwala is endowed with a unique mix of management and creative skills.
An established stand-up comedian, he is deft at turning social subjects into humor and is effortless in his presentation of observational humor and impersonations.
He has performed with the Indian Comedy Club and recently did a solo show, ‘This Thing That Thing’ at Canvas Laugh Club. Known as ‘Oman’s Jokey Boy’, he splits his time between Dubai and Oman.
Papa CJ is a world-renowned stand-up comedian and has won awards for both Asia’s and India’s Best Stand-up Comedian.
He has performed over 2,000 shows in 25 countries and has had numerous appearances on NBC, BBC, Comedy Central, Showtime, MTV, Paramount, The Comedy Channel, ITV and a host of other international networks.
He is the only Indian comedian to have shot his own solo special with Comedy Central Asia. Forbes Magazine called him ‘the global face of Indian stand-up’ and Harvard Business Review called him one of the most influential comedians around the world.
He has taped a Showtime USA stand-up comedy special with Russell Peters and on the American TV show Last Comic Standing, he was placed in the top 10 from over 3,000 contestants across the world.
Papa CJ has represented India at the Shared History Festival in South Africa and had standing ovations on Broadway in New York. He was the first Indian comedian to be invited to premiere at the prestigious Soho Theatre in London, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Just for Laughs Festival in London, and the Sydney and Perth Comedy festivals in Australia.
