Undeniably charming with impeccable comic timing, Eshaan Akbar is the perfect choice to host awards ceremonies and present live events. 

Since starting comedy in March 2014, Eshaan has established himself as an act with exciting potential, performing all over the UK, Germany and Bangladesh.

A former banker, ex-Muslim, and the son of a Thatcherite and a Labourite, he is creating an international name for himself as a brilliant comedian.

A winner of the Piccadilly Comedy Club New Comedian of the Year 2016, Eshaan has been in the finals of other prestigious competitions, including So You Think You’re Funny 2014 and Laughing Horse 2014.

In 2016, he supported Dane Baptiste on his UK tour, and, in the same year, he also performed at the Edinburgh Festival in both CKP’s The Lunchtime Special and Eshaan Akbar & Friends. He returned to Edinburgh in 2017 with his show 'Eshaan Akbar: Not for Prophet'.

His professional career has taken him from private banking through to corporate communications via a career in local government public policy. He has also previously dabbled in Bollywood dance choreography.

He has previously written for The Guardian, The Times online, The Observer New Review and The Huffington Post UK. He is a member of the UK Speechwriters Guild and Fellow of the RSA.

Born and raised in East London, he is a Manchester United fan (obviously) and has torn cricketing allegiances – he fails the Tebbit test every time.
