Danish Anwar

Danish, Anwar

Award-winning comedian Danish Anwar is probably the only Russian-born Indo-Bengali-Canadian stand-up comic you’ll see this year. His clever blend of politics and nerd culture landed him multiple appearances on national TV and radio, such as CBC comedy specials Fish Out Of Water and Truth Bomb and the hugely popular The Debaters, along with comedy festivals Just For Laughs, JFL42, and the Winnipeg Comedy Festival. He had a feature role in the award-winning documentary Stand Up Toronto, and has opened for renowned comedians like Gina Yashere, Aparna Nancherla and DeAnne Smith. Danish is also the creator of Your Hood’s A Joke, a territorial roast battle show that’s become a global phenomenon with franchises playing at the biggest comedy clubs in LA, NYC, Tokyo, Bangkok & London (with more to come).
