Dubai Marina’s first regular comedy night, Frankie’s Comedy Cellar, will host its inaugural show this Saturday, April 11, with a line-up showcasing some of the UAE’s best local comedians.
Live from JBR’s Frankie’s Bar and Grill, Frankie’s Comedy Cellar will run for eight weeks in its first season with a rotating cast of comedians.
The debut event will see Canadian host Dave Marosi on MC duties with local Emirati comedian Omar Kazim opening the night's proceedings. Also featured on the bill is Australian BB, British favourite John Boulton, all-American banker Tony B Graham, Lebanese funny man Rayan H Karaky and Dubai's Tai Optimusgrind Paschall.
Marosi said: “The comedy scene in Dubai right now is really blowing up and there’s a great crop of comedians bringing some real talent to the stage and the audiences are loving it. It’s like New York in the 70s or 80s, exploding with great talent and great material, and Frankie’s Comedy Cellar is the best place where audiences can see and experience this amazing movement."
