Comedy Masala International returned to Karachi once again with new comedians to entertain the audience. As tradition, Pakistan American Cultural Centre (PACC) was chosen to be the venue again and just like their last session in February, Comedy Masala left an ever-lasting impression. At last night’s show marked the 40th show of Comedy Masala where the international comedy club’s founder Umar Rana, along with his partners including marketing director Haris Qasim, brought Tom Cotter, Liz Miele and Kyile Grooms from the US to entertain the local crowd.
It was quite an unexpected experience as Comedy masala is the first of its kind in Pakistan since stand-up comedy is a rare thing here. On the 28th of April, when our team arrived at PACC, the place was packed with enthusiastic individuals and the event itself had a very exclusive vibe to it.
Below is a video of how this month’s session looked like:
WOW WOW WOW 😲 – Check this shit out!! 😍 Fucking astoundingly good!! Comedy Masala International has changed the comedy landscape in Pakistan, forever 😊😏🇵🇰 Recorded at Comedy Masala International's shows in Karachi last weekend. Umar got teary eyed watching this (or was is it because of rogue eyelash? 🧐). Huge props to @arwqs for doing this (Umar and/or @aamirhabib01 owe him a BJ….or three). . . 🍆 #comedymasala #comedymasalainternational #karachi #pakistan . . . . . . #comedian #comedy #standupcomedypakistan #standupcomedy #life #lifestyle #instacomedy #karachinightlife #pakistannightlife
Below is Comedy Masala’s co-founder Umar Rana with Liz Miele inviting everyone to the event. As a matter of fact, the comedians got sick after having some Pakistani food here. It’s funny because this happens to many foreigners after they taste Pakistani food. In turn, the food, along with other observations, also becomes part of their improvisation.
So, when everyone got settled Umar Rana set up the mood for the audience, interacted with them, made sure he got to know them better… and well, asking them common questions (about their occupation, etc.) that they would never be able to answer with a straight face again. After all, that’s just one of the tricks that the comics love to use to make the audience laugh hysterically at all the jokes and the burns they throw.
It took no time for Umar Rana to engage the audience and turn the room into a set of hysterical laughing. His go-to gag about people using phones during the show never fails to get a laugh.
