Headline act
Don Biswas
Don Biswas is one of the gems of the circuit. A politically charged gag merchant who likes to cover a wide range of subjects including his Asian upbringing, his neurodiversity as someone with dyspraxia, ADHD, and ASD and even the most important of topics… conspiracy theories. Don has gained huge admiration off all corners of the circuit.
Don is now a regular face in comedy clubs across the UK. Alongside that Don recently recorded a comedy special for BBC Radio 4 entitled ‘Neurotopical’ and has appeared on Radio 4’s 13 Million Club, Rosie Jones’s Boxticker as well as UKTV Digitals Rosie Jones’s Disabled Comedy Extravaganza and BBC Onlines Future Food Stars.
His unique style has seen him support John Williams on tour, perform in the USA (Silicon Valley & New York) & Switzerland.

“Don Biswas is a unique performer who boldly takes to the stage despite suffering from, Asperger’s syndrome and Dyspraxia. A phenomenal gag teller with an engaging stage persona, Don Biswas shows all the signs of a truly great comic” – Broadway Baby
“His fresh takes on current affairs are consistently hilarious. This will be the first time many audience members would have laughed with, and not at, a conspiracy theorist. at more solemn moments, his sincerity cuts through the jovial atmosphere to reveal a great intellect, and an ability to correctly and resonantly sum up a certain political reality. clever, funny and insane.” – Hecklers Comedy Club
“Don Biswas put more emphasis on slick one-liners, which made much of his Asperger’s and Asian background” – London is Funny
“By the quality of his jokes alone, including a choice one about a corporate gig for the DWP, Biswas is the show’s star turn.” – Hecklers Comedy Club

“Jonny is a force of nature on stage. A whirlwind of hilarity with a unique viewpoint, they energy and passion personified.” – XS Malarkey
