Popular Gold Coast-based stand-up comedian, Desh, brings his stupidly funny stand up show Honestly WTF! to the 2019 Sit Down Comedy Fringe Festival. Tickets are now on sale for the strictly limited season (4 shows only).

Approaching 20 years as a professional stand-up comedian, Desh is best known for his appearances on the NRL Footy Show and Best of the NRL Footy Show Comedians DVD. He is a stand out performer at comedy clubs, charming his audience by applying his wit and comic observations as expected from someone who grew up a Hindu in the beef capital of Australia.

This latest show, Honestly WTF!, was inspired by Desh's experience of living on the Gold Coast for 5 years. The comedy writes itself as Desh opens up about being a middle-aged, fat, balding, nearly successful comedy superstar in the land of duck lipped pouting, cosmetic surgically enhanced, wanna be Instagram models. Sometimes you just have to hit the stupid with your funny.

As Desh points out "I am of Indian heritage but Australian. I have dark skin but sound Aussie AS F**K! When I tell people that I am from the Gold Coast, they don't think I'm Indian, they think I've just gone overboard on the fake tan."

"I used to appear regularly on mainstream media and TV. Then I moved to the Gold Coast and the mainstream TV appearances stopped. The good news is that while you won't see me on mainstream TV, I regularly appear on CCTV!"

Tickets to Honestly WTF! are precious as it is rare for Desh to take time out from his schedule to perform a festival show. He is a husband, a father and addicted to learning stuff. Desh has degrees in science, urban planning and business. When he is not telling tall tales and saying funny stuff, he writes environmental policy for governments and corporations. Desh sits comfortably in his title as 'the not so corporate comedian'.
