Live Comedy Host - Eshaan Akbar


Eshaan Akbar is a regular voice on BBC Asian Network where he hosts a weekly show on Saturday as well as filling in frequently on the Breakfast and Drivetime shows. He has also appeared on shows such as Mock the Week, QI, The Now Show and Frankie Boyle’s New World Order. 
Previously of Barclays and Merton Council, Eshaan holds a Masters in Global Governance and Public Policy and an undergraduate degree in Economics, Finance and Management, and has written articles for The Guardian, The Times and The Huffington Post. He is also a former Bollywood dance choreographer. Is there anything he can’t do? Yes. He can’t tie balloons once he’s blown them up. Which made his job as a children’s entertainer very short-lived. 
"A fine comic entertainer, an intelligent maker of points and a wealth of fascinating facts”  The Scotsman
