Award-winning comedian Danish Anwar is probably the only Russian-born Indo-Bengali-Canadian standup comic you’ll see this year. His clever blend of politics & nerd culture landed him multiple appearances on national TV & radio, such as CBC comedy specials “Fish Out Of Water” and “Truth Bomb” and the hugely popular CBC Radio show The Debaters, along with comedy festivals such as Just For Laughs, JFL42 and the Winnipeg Comedy Festival. He had a feature role in the acclaimed TVO documentary “Stand Up Toronto”, and has opened for renowned comedians like Gina Yashere, Aparna Nancherla & DeAnne Smith.

A successful producer with a reputation for trendsetting ideas and sold out shows, he’s also the founder of the comedy label Toronto Comedy All Stars and creator of the wildly popular battle show Your Hood’s A Joke, which has become a popular recurring show at several comedy festivals.
