Comedy Central knows what’s funny. And so do the millions of viewers who watch the channel. Whenever and wherever audiences have wanted comedy, Comedy Central has given them more ways to laugh.

To kick off their foray into live entertainment in India, Comedy Central has chosen Indo-Canadian comedian Sugar Sammy to perform for its new on-ground property “Comedy Central Presents” bringing you the best in stand up comedy from across the world. Sugar Sammy will perform in Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore this March 2013.

Sugar Sammy travels the world, performing to his dedicated fans in countries as varied as England, the U.S., Dubai, South Africa, Singapore, Holland, Australia and of course, Canada. He’s been invited to perform at Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival seven times and is the first, and probably the only comic to perform in all four of his native languages in the English, French and Toronto editions. No stranger to the prestigious festival circuit, he’s also performed at the Sydney, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Melbourne, Auckland, Halifax, Quebec City and Winnipeg festivals as well as Le Grand rire festival in Quebec City.
Sugar Sammy has performed over a thousand shows in 30 countries in English, Hindi, Punjabi and French. In the last 11 months, he has sold 120,000 tickets in Canada. Part of a new breed of young, global, accessible performers, dubbed him “Comedy’s New Rock Star” and The Hollywood Reporter selected him as one of their “Ten Comics to Watch”. 
India may never be the same after Sugar Sammy brings his comedy and his views on his Indian roots, world travels, arranged marriages, pop culture and modern day relationships to the homeland.
 “It’s an honour to be the first artist to be presented with a live tour with such a legendary brand as Comedy Central in India” says Sugar Sammy. “My parents were born in India and left when they were in their 20’s. A lot of my comedy comes from the generational clash between me and my family. This series of shows is just the beginning of what’s to come in India.  I hope to slay a new legion of fans and create some more history!”
