Zakir’s phenomenal rise as one of the most popular comedians in the country is nothing short of extraordinary. While touring with his Amazon Prime special, Haq Se Single, he sold out to arenas of thousands. Having created waves in 2016 with his appearance on AIB Diwas, he swiftly went on to become what AIB founder Tanmay Bhat describes as “The biggest stand-up comedy act in India. Period”. Over the last year, he has sold 50,000 tickets over 100 shows in clubs, colleges and arenas.

Called a pioneer of storytelling in Indian comedy, he serves up his take on modern India with a hard-to-resist rustic humor that’ll have you nodding your heads and clapping as you relate to everything he says. He can smoothly switch modes for an audience full of family members, a corporate crowd or a room full of men. Each show will know him as a different Zakir.
