Comedian's Bio

Rishi Budhrani

“Rishi made history in 2012 by becoming the first Singaporean stand-up comedian to win the Hong Kong International Comedy Competition and also became the first Singaporean comedian to play at top international clubs like the Gotham Comedy Club in New York and The Comedy and Magic Club in LA.

He also headlined a show, Sons of Singapore, at the Sydney Comedy Festival, with two other comics, in 2013 and has since performed successful shows in Macau, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam, amongst other countries.

Locally, Rishi featured in Dream Academy’s Happy Ever Laughter at The Esplanade Theatre in 2014.

As an actor, Rishi was recently seen in Cook A Pot of Curry by W!ld Rice (Nominated for Best Ensemble at The Straits Times Life! Theatre Awards 2014) and We Are Like This Only by HuM Theatre.

Rishi also conducts one-of-a-kind Laughter and Humor Based Motivational Workshops under a company, Complete Communicators. He runs this with his wife, fellow comedian/actress, Sharul Channa.

He is eternally grateful for the support of his friends, family and partner but requests that they refrain from trying to wave at him from the stands during his shows. He’d rather they Tweet or Instagram him after the show @rishibudhrani”
