Delhiites experienced an evening full of laughter and humorous punches as stand-up comedian Zakir Khan performed live at Siri Fort auditorium in the capital on September 23. The show was organised as part of the nine-city stand-up comedy tour by Red Live, the live entertainment vertical of Red FM.
The stand-up comedian created comic mayhem at a packed Siri Fort. Red FM aims to take the new wave of stand-up comedy to the masses with this never-seen-before comedy tour with rising talent Zakir Khan.
After the Delhi show, which was sold out, the comedian will take his comic tour to other cities, including Indore, Bhubaneswar, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Bhopal, Pune and Lucknow. After mesmerising musical evenings, the nine-city tour will mark Red Live's foray into stand-up comedy.
Nisha Narayanan, COO, 93.5 Red FM, said, “Stand-up comedy has worked for us in the past when we did Red Live with Kapil Sharma. It gives the Red Live vertical another dimension as we explore expanding to other formats of live entertainment. We aim to bring the most relevant and engaging form of entertainment to listeners. Zakir Khan is a fast-emerging successful artist in the field of stand-up comedy and he quite personifies the Bajate Raho attitude in his brand of comic narrative. Given the growing popularity of stand-up comedy, we are delighted to announce the Red Live nine-city tour with Zakir Khan. With this initiative, we aim to grow Red Live as a larger platform for entertainment and performing artists that goes beyond music.”
