Ashish Suri is a Comedian by night, a Data guy by day, and a retired Scientist by education.
Starting 2022 with his first solo show at Soho Theatre, London and getting nominated for the prestigious Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2022, Ashish was also awarded the judges' pick Panel Prize at the Beat the Frog World Series and named the runner-up for the Brighton New Grin Comedy Award 2021 within the same week.
He lives and breathes stand-up comedy and is at the heart of a number of scratch comedy shows, supporting grass-roots comedy in his dual roles of artist wrangler and resident MC in clubs like The Comedy Cabin in Hoxton.
Ashish’s journey in the U.K. started as a student but quickly lead him to stand-up comedy in search of a cheap substitute for therapy and lack of social life. Nine years down the line he is now a comedian and a full time immigrant, telling the stories of how outside of the Motherland (India) even the simple things in life are different and that despite his tan, he's just as weird as everyone else.
