Neel Kolhatkar Hits Regional Venues This August To September

Young comedy superstar Neel Kolhatkar will be hitting regional venues across the country this August to September, following his acclaimed performances on major comedy festivals during the first half of the year.

The actor-comedian will kick off the tour at Lizotte's Restaurant in Newcastle, then will make his way to The Street Theatre in Canberra, before bringing his brand of comedy to Southport Sharks in the Gold Coast. Performances in Sunshine Coast's Villa Noosa Hotel, Geelong Performing Arts Centre and Illawarra Performing Arts Centre in Wollongong will follow. Neel will cap the tour with a show in Bendigo's The Capital Theatre.

"You need to see Neel Kolhatkar. He will have you wishing the show hadn’t been only an hour." - Broadway Baby, UK

"One of the best young comedians that Australia has to offer." - Weekend Notes

"Clever, Incisive and outright hilarious." - Theatre People

"The transition from camera to live audience came seemingly effortlessly to the Sydney-based comedian, whose radiant charisma and unapologetic sense of humour left nothing to be desired." - This Is Radelaide

"Fearless and feisty, Neel Kolhatkar’s is a voice that everyone can resonate with, the only setback is the hour not lasting long enough." - In Review

Currently making waves overseas—with runs at Edinburgh Fringe Festival and performing by invitation as a part of the New York Comedy Festival—Neel first broke into the scene after winning the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s national Class Clowns Competition at fifteen. He was then invited (in both 2010 and 2011) to perform at the Festival’s Teenage Gala, a showcase of Australia’s best comedians aged 20 or under, and in 2013 was again handpicked by the Festival directors as the youngest of five comics to perform as part of The Comedy Zone featuring the finest up and coming comedians in the nation.

He skyrocketed to Internet fame in 2013 with his viral impressions video 'Australia In 2 Minutes'. This has since been superseded by his popular and provocative short films—in particular Modern Educayshun—which has been viewed over 7.5 million times on YouTube alone. Neel has also released his debut, self-produced stand-up special on the same platform, which is soon to be followed by his 2016 live special filmed at Sydney’s Metro Theatre. A main cast member of the digital Emmy award-winning TV show #7DaysLater, Neel has also written and performed for SBS’s Stand-Up At Bella Union, The Comedy Channel’s No Laughing Matter, Just For Laughs Stand Up Series, ABC TV’s Mediacrity, and SBS’s Comedy Runway pilot Tip Rats.

Grab your tickets and get a taste of Neel Kolhatkar's hard-hitting yet charming brand of comedy.
