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!
