NEW YORK, April 26, 2010 – COMEDY CENTRAL invites viewers to sit back, take a sip of scotch, enjoy the bagpipes and laugh with Danny Bhoy in the World Television Premiere of “Danny Bhoy: Subject to Change,” debuting Saturday, May 22 at 11:00 p.m.
What happens when an Indian, a Scot and a comic all walk into a bar Find out when COMEDY CENTRAL brings Scotland’s favorite Indian comedian to the stage. Known for being keenly observant with a razor sharp wit, get Danny Bhoy’s take on bagpipes, why he acts like a Frenchman when he’s in America and the reason behind his intense love of accents in this brand-new, one-hour stand-up special debuting Saturday, May 22 on COMEDY CENTRAL.
Since his first solo show in a modest 60-seater at the Edinburgh Fringe back in 2001, Bhoy’s star has continued to rise. His eighth solo show at the Fringe last year to packed houses (in one of the biggest venues in town) tells only a small part of the incredible journey this young Scottish comic has taken.
In just a few short years, Bhoy has built up a massive following everywhere he has been. He has continually smashed his own box office records in Australia and New Zealand, as well as in his home country of Scotland. On the other side of the Atlantic, his recent appearances at the Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival have created a stir among audiences and critics alike with the Montreal Gazette describing him as “the stand out hit of the festival.” He was also nominated for a Gemini Award for Best Individual Comedy Performance. In 2008, he had the honor of appearing on the prestigious All Star Gala, usually reserved for veteran comics of the festival. After unprecedented sell-out runs in Montreal and Toronto, Bhoy’s must-see solo tour continues through Canada and the U.S.
