A new comedy play by Tarun Mohanbhai
After a decade of performing D'arranged Marriage from London to Singapore, Vancouver to Dunedin, Tarun is premiering his new play Joke in the Box at the 2012 NZ International Comedy Festival.
Tarun plays, Ziggy, a relatively successful comic bored of life. Much to the horror of his agent, Ziggy decides to reinvent himself to compete with the young new age of comics in his quest for super stardom. A brilliant combination of standup and character comedy, this play promises to be yet another of Mohanbhai's international successes.
Tarun Mohanbhai is a New Zealand born Gujarati Indian. He performs regularly in the Indian community and as host on the Radio Live show “xxx”. Not only has he toured his comedy plays internationally almost constantly since 1999, but he has been a stalwart in the NZ comedy scene. He has appeared on Pulp Comedy (TV2), A Thousand Apologies (TV3) and The Millen Baird Show (TV3).
Joke in the Box is directed by Jesse Griffin.
