Here is some information on our Ladies who will be on stage :
Neeti Palta ( India )
Neeti brings to the English stand up comedy scene in India what it sorely lacks – a female perspective. Therefore she has the unique advantage of being able to present a female point of view on a variety of subjects from the life of a woman in India, Indian idiosyncrasies, to daily irritants, current affairs, etc, while indulging in a spot of poking fun at men (ok, a lot of that!).
She was voted as the best Stand Up Comic at the Oz Fest and was India’s first Stand Up to perform at Melbourne for the prestigious Melbourne Comedy Festival 2013.
Neeti has done shows for varied audiences and corporates across Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Chennai, Coimbatore, Kochi, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodhpur, Goa, Kolkatta, Bangalore, Pune, etc.
Neeti established one of Delhi’s oldest and most successful comedy outfits – Loony Goons – in which she organizes shows for corporates, pubs and private parties. It’s a pioneer outfit that flies in the best comedians from across India to give comedy night a truly complete ‘Indian’ feel.
Sharul Channa ( Singapore )
A trained actor from La Salle College of the Arts, and a Communications Graduate from the University of Buffalo, Sharul is one of the most sought after talents in Singapore today. She is also Singapore’s first ever Indian female stand-up comic and a versatile event emcee.
She has also been on TV regularly for various series on Channel News Asia, commercials on AXN and also for documentaries on MediaCorp Channel 5. A brilliant comic actress, Sharul has been seen in productions like Rafta Rafta and We are Like This Only (HuM Theatre) and Rub My Antenna (Complete Communicators). As a comic, Sharul has shared the stage with some of the top comedians in the world. She was the opening act for Papa CJ (India), Irene Ang (Singapore), Raju Shrivastava (India), Jojo Smith (UK) and many others. She has performed with Reuben Paul (USA) at the MGM Macau and also headlined shows for The Comedy Club KL, Comedy Kao Kao, PJ Laugh Fest 2013, One Mic Stand, The Comedy Lounge in Perth and Sydney, amongst others.
Sharul has also performed at the Georgetown Festival in Penang 2013 and Weirdass Pajama Festival 2014, India’s largest comedy festival. She also produced and performed a sold-out two-man show in Singapore titled The Rishi and Sharul Show. In recent times, Sharul’s work has been featured in The Straits Times, The NEW Paper, The Mumbai Mirror, The Indian Express, and The Economic Times Indi
Luwita Hana Randhawa ( Malaysia )
This English-born lass has studied film and theatre in New Zealand, and has honed her improv skills in New York City. Now, Luwita’s making waves in the stand-up comedy scene right her in Kuala Lumpur. You better pre-book your tickets to one of her shows quick because shows are selling out fast for the new It girl in comedy.
