Eshaan Akbar has established himself as an act with exciting potential.
A winner of the Piccadilly Comedy Club New Comedian of the Year 2016, Eshaan has been in the finals of other prestigious competitions, including So You Think You’re Funny 2014 and Laughing Horse 2014. He has performed across the UK and in Germany and Bangladesh. In 2016, he supported Dane Baptiste on his UK tour.
His professional career has taken him from private banking through to corporate communications via a career in local government public policy. He has previously written for The Guardian, The Times online, The Observer New Review and The Huffington Post UK. He is a member of the UK Speechwriters Guild and Fellow of the RSA.
Born and raised in East London, he is a Manchester United fan (obviously) and has torn cricketing allegiances – he fails the Tebbit test every time. He has previously dabbled in Bollywood dance choreography.
Eshaan is one of the funniest Comedians in the country and a brilliant Awards Host. He is the ideal choice for Awards Hosting, Conference Dinners and Comedy Nights. Please contact a Prime Performers Booking Agent on 020 7251 8222 to discuss your requirements.
