After being fired from his father’s tailoring business, Rishi used all that leftover material to make history by becoming the first Singaporean to win the Hong Kong International Comedy Competition and perform at the Gotham Comedy Club in NYC. Rishi has since been invited to perform in Sydney, Melbourne, India, Sri Lanka and even China. After a show he did for Time Out Singapore, they said he “left them in stitches from beginning to end.”
Locally, Rishi was seen in live shows like Dream Academy’s Happy Ever Laughter and was the comedian-host of the annual hit comedy, Kings and Queen of Comedy Asia 2015. He featured in Comedy Central Asia’s first ever original TV showcase titled Stand-up Asia, and is a regular panelist/writer for Singapore’s first ever live comedy panel show on channel 5 titled OK CHOPE!
