Danish Anwar

Danish, Anwar

Award-winning comedian Danish Anwar is probably the only Russian-born Indo-Bengali-Canadian standup 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 CBC Radio show The Debaters, along with comedy festivals such as Just For Laughs Toronto (JFL42) and the Winnipeg Comedy Festival. He was one of the primary subjects in the acclaimed TVO documentary Stand Up Toronto which delved into the experiences of comedians of colour in Canada, and has opened for renowned comedians like Gina Yashere, Aparna Nancherla, and DeAnne Smith.
