The Desi Comedy Fest is back this summer featuring the best south asian comedians from around the globe in the San Francisco Bay Area - Aug 10th-20th!
Desi Comedy Fest is the largest annual South Asian comedy festival in America featuring the funniest South Asian comedians from around the globe. Now in its 4th year, the 2017 edition presents 40 comedians of Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi and Sri Lankan descent. We also have comedians from various minority groups and the LGBTQ community. The comedians are raw, hilarious and some of the best in the business. The comedians this year come from all over USA, Canada, South Africa and India, and have been on Comedy Central, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Conan and The Late show on Letterman.
Day 10 of 11 of the Desi Comedy Fest is at the awesome Bankhead Theater in Livermore.
