Step into the riotous world of Kumar, one of Singapore's most iconic comedians, as he takes centre stage at Esplanade Singapore with his uproarious new show, The Great Indian Mix.


"This comedic journey spans the breadth and depth of the Indian subcontinent. But this isn’t just about geography—it's about people, traditions, idiosyncrasies, and the hilariously relatable nuances of being Indian, no matter where in the world you might be.


From the melodious songs of Bollywood to the spicy tales of South Indian masalas, Kumar is going to spill the tea about the quirks and complexities of the Indian experience.


Expect a roller-coaster of laughter as Kumar touches on everything from family dynamics, wedding extravaganzas, superstitions and festive frenzies to the age-old tussle between traditional values and modern aspirations—all served with a side of sharp social commentary and Kumar's signature wit.


Whether you're Indian or not, Kumar promises a night where you'll laugh, learn, and perhaps see the world (and its many Indians) in a refreshingly humorous light. Don't miss this side-splitting journey into the heart and humour of one of the world's most diverse and vibrant cultures!
