Fresh from winning Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards, join one of India’s most exciting comics as she embarks on her debut UK tour.

Urooj is a stand-up comedian who hails from Mumbai, India. She not only has a degree in psychology but later went on to be in therapy herself. What is her show about, you ask? I think you should ask YOURSELF why you insist on knowing everything. Why don’t you just show up for the thing, be surprised, and go with the flow?*

‘Her show is entitled Oh No! but when it comes to Ashfaq one can only conclude Oh Yes!’
★★★★ Evening Standard

Urooj was one of six South Asian artists we brought to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year through Soho Theatre India. Over the past decade we’ve introduced over 30 Indian acts to the UK, on stages ranging from Soho Theatre to the Eventim Apollo and Royal Albert Hall.

*Okay, I’ll tell you: the show is about her, her family, things that annoy her, and things she loves. She will obviously talk about herself since she’s already speaking in the third person. Please come to my show. I love you.

Loved the show? Wanna see more?

This show has now passed, but we have a full festival programme of comedy, theatre and cabaret throughout the year. Check out what's on now to find more great shows coming up.
