Zakir Khan to light up Etihad Arena with laughter; set to performance in Abu Dhabi this February!

The well-known funny man and poet will be bringing his show to Abu Dhabi on February 18th

Etihad Arena on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, is set to resonate with laughter and humour when Zakir Khan, the celebrated Indian comedian, poet, and actor, takes centre stage for an unforgettable performance on 18th February. Presented by Live Nation Middle East, this exclusive show, performed predominantly in Hindi, promises an evening of laughter, wit, and relatable anecdotes from one of India’s favourite laugh makers.

A renowned name in the comedy circuit, Zakir Khan first captivated audiences’ hearts in 2012 when he clinched the prestigious title of India’s Best Stand Up Comedian from Comedy Central, a feat that propelled his career into stardom. His charismatic presence and endearing style of storytelling have earned him a dedicated fan base worldwide with fans flocking to his shows wherever he performs.

His is the most unlikely of stories – a college drop-out from Indore whose preferred medium is Hindi, breaking into an English-dominated scene. Zakir is one of the most loved and celebrated stand-up comedians in India. From his humble beginnings to selling 100,000 tickets across 72 cities in 2019 alone, his has been an incredible journey.

Recognised for his popular stand-up specials such as “Haq Se Single” (2017), “Kaksha Gyarvi” (2018), and “Tathastu” (2022) on Amazon Prime Video, Zakir Khan’s humour resonates deeply with audiences across diverse cultures. His approach to comedy is anecdotal, personal, and heartfelt, and his delivery is poetic and rustic at the same time. His appeal lies in his reliability – he has often said he used humour as a shield when bullied as a child, and his stories are punctuated with phrases that have become catchphrases, including the iconic ‘sakht launda’.

Apart from his comedic prowess, Khan has ventured into the field podcasting with “Ummeed on Gaana,” a series where he shares inspirations drawn from personal life incidents, collaborating with fellow comedians. He has an exceptional talent in blending humour with thought-provoking storytelling and his upcoming performance promises an evening of sheer delight for comedy enthusiasts.
