Indian comedy star Kanan Gill is coming to Massey Theatre in 2022. Ticket sales start Dec. 10.

Tickets are on sale today (Friday, Dec. 10) for what will be stand-up comedian Kanan Gill’s lone stop in Western Canada, an April 16 date at New Westminster’s Massey Theatre.

Kanan Gill: Is This It blends sketch comedy, improv and what show organizers bill as “razor-sharp observations and delivery.”

Gill announced himself to the Indian comedy scene in 2014 with Pretentious Movie Reviews, a YouTube series where he and fellow comic Biswa Kalyan Rath panned Bollywood movies.

Solo stand-up material followed, with global tours across North America, Australia, the U.K., Europe, Singapore, Hong Kong and India. Gill has since penned a pair of stand-up specials:  2017’s Keep It Real on Amazon Prime Video and 2020’s Yours Sincerely, Kanan Gill on Netflix.

Along the way, Gill has performed sketch comedy in his own ‘How Insensitive!’ YouTube series and acted in the mockumentary ‘Better Life Foundation’ by Them Boxer Shorts.  

Apart from his stand-up specials, Gill has a library of work on Amazon Prime Video: he co-stars in the sketch comedy special Sketchy Behaviour with Kenny Sebastian, is a judge and mentor on India’s biggest stand-up comedy hunt series called ‘Comicstaan’ and also appears in the improvised comedy special, The Improvisers: Something From Nothing, which is a titular group that he is a part of, along with Abish Mathew, Kenny Sebastian and Kaneez Surka.

Tickets to Gill’s show can be bought online.
