Acclaimed comedian Shazia Mirza enthralls Hyderabad at The Kingfisher Comedy Nights
Hyderabad, July 26, 2012: Hyderabad was treated to an evening packed with rib tickling humour and fun as world famous comedian Shazia Mirza tickled their funny bone at the Kingfisher Comedy Nights, held at the Park Hotel. Shazia who performed to a packed house was an infectious blend of enthusiasm & explosive energy and kept everyone rolling in laughter.
The opening act for this outrageously hilarious evening was Mumbai based stand-up comedian Varun Thakur, who is also an actor, writer and VJ. This multi talented personality had the audience in splits with his straight faced and slapstick humour.
The two talented comedians touched upon a wide range of topics starting from family relationships to marriages, divorce, sex and more.
Mr. Samar Singh Sheikhawat, Senior Vice President, Marketing, United Breweries Ltd. mentioned, “ Kingfisher Comedy Nights was conceptualized a couple of years ago to provide our consumers a unique, fun experience which allows them to unwind with a chilled Kingfisher at the end of the day. Over the years Kingfisher Comedy Nights has gained immense popularity and this edition too promises to take the brand’s promise of ‘good times’ to a completely new level. Through the association with an internationally acclaimed and talented entertainer such as Shazia Mirza, performing at the Kingfisher Comedy Nights we hope to continue the ‘good times’ and present many more such entertaining evenings.”
Shazia Mirza’s Pakistani parentage and Birmingham upbringing has resulted in a comedy rich in diversity with a general observational approach. Shazia has a huge international reach and has had a long running column in Guardian Weekend Magazine. In 2008 she also won the PPA Awards for Best Columnist for her New Statesman bi monthly.
