He was the hot ticket at last year's NZ International Comedy Festival, and now the UK's master impressionist returns!

The standup chameleon Anil Desai returns to NZ with a brand new show. 'Night at the Movies' sees the master mimic takes you on a star-studded tour of his imagination. Featuring a host of Hollywood stars, live movie trailers, slick standup and hilarious stories, this feel good show promises to delight Kiwi audiences all over again.

Described as a "possessed, schizophrenic tour-de-force", Anil is a veteran of the world's great festivals. His warm affability and pin point impressions make him a sought-after performer in the UK, Europe and South Asia.

Desai's pedigree on the festival circuit includes 15 years as a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe including a show that featured a record-breaking 52 impressions in 5 minutes. He began his career starring in the award-winning BBC sketch show series Goodness Gracious Me. He also co-hosted on the ever-popular, occasionally risqué live late show Spank! Desai is one of the few acts who has crossed the genre divide, performing regularly on the comedy, cabaret, variety and burlesque circuits. He is a regular at the Melbourne and Sydney Comedy Festivals and throughout Asia and Europe.
