Leiden English Comedy Nights

zaterdag 19 mei 2018

This May English Comedy Nights-Leiden brings you something hilariously different! Brown Guys, Grey Skies - A touring 2 man comedy stand-up special! Comedians Deepu Dileepan and Sundeep Bhadwaj will be here for one night only with regular MC Carly Baker (USA).

Brown Guys, Grey Skies’ is a standup comedy show that presents an outsider perspective to life in Europe. Featuring Deepu Dileepan and Sundeep Bhardwaj - the show explores themes of love, adventure and truth. Part observational humor, part cathartic revelation, the two part standup show is presented through distinct, contrasting filters. That of a (i) a young millennial from India whose first encounter with snow was last weekend and (ii) a naturalized Luxembourgish man who used to shoplift electronics but has since wizened into a proper job in money laundering at a European bank. ‘Brown Guys, Grey Skies’ takes audiences through the true travails of an interracial marriage, a long-drawn battle with Polio, restroom puzzles at the workplace and the inherent joy of grey skies. The show zigzags through hilarious childhood stories from India and how it ricochets in present day Luxembourg. It also packs novel quips on Islamophobia in a post-Brexit world and Pope Francis’ platinum rap album, if he dropped one.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

He enjoys significant repute as a serial champion speaker in humorous speech contests across Toastmasters Clubs in Europe and is a star on the European comedy circuit. Blessed with two kids, he spends most of his time convincing strangers that he is the real father.

Currently based in Luxembourg City, he is the producer of the Luxembourg Comedy Festival and performs in venues across Europe.

Deepu is former repertoire member of ‘EvamStandup Tamasha’ – one of India top comedy collectives. He is also a movie reviewer for Galatta Media – South India’s largest media promotion house.
