A naturally funny storyteller

After being fired from his father’s tailoring business, Rishi used all that leftover material to make history as a Singaporean comedian, breaking barriers locally and globally. Besides being the creator of online news satire series, The Rishi Report, he became the first Singaporean comedian to perform at The Gotham Comedy Club in New York City.

Apart from his appearances on Comedy Central’s Stand-up Asia, you can hear him on the Netflix animated series Downstairs, as the voice of Sammy, or catch him as a guest on CNN’s flagship travel show, Quest’s World of Wonder.

Rishi has performed successful shows in India, China, Sri Lanka, Dubai, and also the Melbourne and Sydney Comedy Festivals. He hosted an award-winning travel series helmed by Singapore Airlines and Singapore Tourism Board titled Unexpected Journeys, which took him to 4 continents and 7 different towns in 40 days.

In one of his most recent solo live shows, EXPOSED, Rishi gave his audience an insight of what it was like being the first stand-up comedian to host Singapore’s National Day Parade for 25,000 spectators.
