A rising star on the comedy scene, Eshaan Akbar has established himself as an act with exciting potential.
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.
He performed at the Edinburgh Festival in 2016 in The Lunchtime Special and took his own shows up there in the following two years.
His professional career has taken him from private banking through to corporate communications via a career in local government public policy. He has 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, Eshaan is a Manchester United fan (obviously) and has torn cricketing allegiances – he fails the Tebbit test every time! He has even previously dabbled in Bollywood dance choreography...
