The Comedy Cornershop are proud to present Abishek & Nirmal live in the UK!
Continuing their brilliant run of The Reel to Real – Crowdwork Tour from 2022, Abishek Kumar and Nirmal Pillai are coming back to London with an even more fun and interactive show, only to make you laugh harder.
With the knack of high energy performances and jokes that will leave you cackling, Abishek Kumar won the titles of Amazon Prime Video’s Comicstaan Tamil and LOL Tamil. During the lockdown, he became a household name thanks to the character “Mrs. Janaki” that he created using an animoji in his short form videos on Instagram and YouTube – a school teacher who made observations in her own household and the world around her. Based in Chennai, he is one of the most celebrated and relatable voices down south and beyond.
Nirmal Pillai stands as one of the most promising creators and live performers in the country in today’s time. He creates wholesome, relatable content and delivers each with a unique standpoint with his eccentric humor and melodramatic treatment. Recognising a grey state of being a Chennai bred and a Malayali at heart, who is now based out of Bangalore, his lens is for the cultures is peculiar and his narratives thrive on simplicity.
He was recognised in the Instagram’s official list of 25 Under 25 Influencers 2021 and made it top 5 of Forbes 100 Digital Star 2022. He also ventured into Crowd Work Comedy with Abishek Kumar and had a sold out tour in India, Dubai, London and Dublin.
