Stand-up comedian Kapil Sharma is returning to Dubai after a three-year hiatus to perform at the Coca-Cola Arena on Friday. The television star, known for Comedy Circus and Comedy Nights with Kapil, rose to fame after winning the comedy reality show The Great Indian Laughter Challenge in 2007. He has since become a household name India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

The wit and relatable observations in his shows were watched by people from the ages of six to 60. With more than 25 million followers on Facebook and 18 million on Instagram, we’re sure to see an incredible turnout for his first performance at the 17,000 seat arena.

Sharma has performed in Dubai before. In 2014, the comedian and his Comedy Nights With Kapil team came here for a special series of shows. It was organized on special request and by popular demand from the UAE audience. He was back in 2016 with The Kapil Sharma Comedy Show, performing at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

“Having performed in Dubai earlier, I know what a great experience it is to go live here. The audience here is very responsive, and have a great sense of humour so it’s fun engaging with them. For many Indians, UAE is their home-away-from-home, and it’s my pleasure to bring a bit of home-like feel to them with my show, which I hope they will enjoy as much as I love performing it,” Sharma said.

Tickets start at Dh150 and can be bought online from Bookmyshow.com. But we’d hurry if we were you, the stand-up comic promises a night of laughs as he and guests perform an unmissable night of comedy.
