Stand-up comic Papa CJ to perform ‘Naked’ at comedy fests in Sydney and Perth
Comedian Papa CJ—the man Forbes Magazine called ‘the global face of Indian stand-up’ and Toastmaster International named one of the most influential comedians around the world—will debut his show ‘Naked’ at the Sydney and Perth Comedy Festivals.
A world-renowned stand-up comedian who has won awards for both Asia’s and India’s Best Stand-up Comedian, Papa CJ has performed over 2,000 shows in 20 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.
‘Naked’ is the comedian’s hugely successful international show. The show has represented India at the Shared History Festival in South Africa and had standing ovations on Broadway in New York. It was the first show from an Indian comedian to be invited to premiere at the prestigious Soho Theatre in London, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Just for Laughs Festival in London. Papa CJ also has multiple offers from publishers to turn this show into a book.
The Sydney show is on Saturday, 29 April, at 9.15pm at the Factory Theatre and the Perth show is on Friday, 5 May, at 9.15pm at the State Theatre (Heath Ledger Theatre).
