MAKE CHAI NOT WAR | A STANDUP COMEDY SHOWCASE
MAKE CHAI NOT WAR is a standup comedy showcase starring some of the brightest rising stars in America today. Hosted by Chicago’s native son, Azhar Usman (best known for the international comedy brand “Allah Made Me Funny”), the show will be headlined by Hannibal Buress, another Chicago native who has taken the NYC comedy scene by storm.
Hannibal has performed standup on late night talk shows, Comedy Central, and is now a full-time staff writer for NBC’s Saturday Night Live. The show will also feature Rajiv Satyal, an LA comic originally from Ohio, who is among America’s top Indian comedians (often referred to simply as “The Funny Indian”), as well as Hari Kondabolu, a NYC comedian with Seattle roots, whose TV credits include late night talk shows and Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham!
MAKE CHAI NOT WAR will also be a benefit show for Apna Ghar, a Chicago-based shelter for abused women and children, so the show promises to provide smart comedy for a good cause.
