Papa CJ takes India overseas
Papa CJ is recognised as the global face of cutting-edge Indian stand-up comedy. With over 1,000 shows, he has made his mark in the hearts and laughs of everyone around the globe. He was also recognised as one of the top ten comedians in the world at the 2008 NBC’s TV show Last Comic Standing. Papa CJ’s international TV credits include shows on various channels including Comedy Central, Paramount, ITV, BBC, The Comedy Channel and MTV. Papa CJ also hosts private and corporate events for top executives such as Mukesh Ambani and Shashi Tharoor. He also runs a charity that works with underprivileged children in India which is funded largely by his comedy.

He will be performing for the elite Light of India Awards, which recognise excellence of Indians abroad across different fields, in New York on June 1. It emphasises the critical role that this community has played in terms of its contribution, both to India and the world. The awards will be given to achievers in the field of Corporate, Business, Science Technology & Medicine, Literature & Journalism, Arts & Entertainment, Education and Academics. The jury comprises of Mira Nair, Suhel Seth and Shashi Tharoor, who called him “The funniest stand-up comedian in India and probably beyond!”

With so much on his plate, Papa CJ is extremely excited and says, “I’m very excited about performing in New York and entertaining some of the most successful Indians on the global stage. Eminent personalities in the fields of business, entertainment, science and education will be present. After that, I’ll be representing Indian stand-up comedy on one of the most cutting edge comedy circuits in the world. On June 3, I’m doing a show at the Broadway Comedy Club with Aasif Mandvi of The Daily Show. This gig will showcase ‘Brown’ Comedy and have comedians from the Middle East, India and Pakistan. On June 4, I’m performing at Comic Strip Live, which Chris Rock calls one of the best comedy clubs in the world. In fact to quote Jerry Seinfeld, “When you are a child starting out as a stand-up comic, you dream about the 9 o’clock spot at the Comic Strip”. I’m looking forward to living that dream!”
