Since starting comedy in March 2014, Eshaan Akbar has established himself as an act with exciting potential.

A winner of the Piccadilly Comedy Club New Comedian of the Year 2016, Eshaan has been in the finals of other prestigious competitions, including So You Think You’re Funny 2014 and Laughing Horse 2014. He performs across the UK and has performed in Germany and Bangladesh. In 2016, he supported Dane Baptiste on his UK tour and did warm up work for “Micky Flanagan and Friends”.

His professional career has taken him from private banking through to corporate communications via a career in local government public policy. He has previously written for The Guardian, The Times online, The Observer New Review and The Huffington Post UK. He is a member of the UK Speechwriters Guild and Fellow of the RSA.

Born and raised in East London, he is a Manchester United fan (obviously) and has torn cricketing allegiances – he fails the Tebbit test every time. He has previously dabbled in Bollywood and salsa dance choreography.
