NITINN & TREVOR’S SPECIAL CONNECTION
One of Dubai’s funniest men, Nitinn Miranni (that’s how he spells his name these days!), is thrilled. And why not considering he will end the year on a bang, opening the show for the one and only Trevor Noah on December 21 for DU Forum in Abu
Dhabi. Of course, this isn’t the first time Nitinn and Noah have worked their magic together. He had gotten a chance to open for Trevor in 2015 during the Dubai Comedy Festival. “Being a Trevor Noah fan, I felt terrified but the show went well and Trevor congratulated me and also thanked me for warming up the crowd just right,” he recalls. Next, he got a chance again last year when the folks at OFF Broadway entertainment, (the organisers for most of Trevor’s shows) called him and offered him the platform for Trevor again at DU Forum. “After hesitating, like, for a second, I said yes,” chuckles Nitin.
Now, this is the third time. Trevor, it appears has taken quite a liking for the desi boy and it’s not hard to see why. Nitinn, has in a way, paved the way for the booming comedy scene in the city and while he has shifted base to Mumbai, his fan base here is intact. “I am just looking forward to sharing the stage with him and as usual, have a fan moment, watching him and learning.”
We will be watching too!
