BBC’s Asian Network showcases Big Comedy

This week, the BBC Red Button has been broadcasting BBC Asian Network’s Big Comedy Night.

The event showcased the best of Asian comedy in the UK and beyond in special week of programming.

Recorded in front of a live audience at the BBC’s Radio Theatre in London last month, BBC Asian Network’s Big Comedy Night saw performances by some of the biggest Asian comedy talent around – including performances from viral internet sensation IISuperwomanII, impressionist Anil Desai, the ‘master of twerking’ Mawaan Rizwaan, and one of India’s leading stand-up comedians Aditi Mittal.

Mark Strippel, Head of Programs for the Asian Network, says: “BBC Asian Network has developed a genuine platform for progressive British-Asian and South-Asian comic talents in recent years and this Red Button special, filmed at the BBC Radio Theatre, shines a spotlight on some of our rising stars.”
