Dubai comedian proposes during show
The Dubai Comedy Festival is in full swing, and there are plenty of jokes doing the rounds. But at Nitin Mirani’s show last Saturday, things took a serious turn to the delight of the 1,000 strong audience.
The Dubai-based Indian comic took a ring out, bounded towards the audience and got down on one knee in front of girlfriend, actress Madhu Sneha. She threw her hands over her mouth in sock and said ‘yes’, causing the audience to erupt in applause.
Moments earlier, Mirani told the audience that he’d never properly proposed to Madhu, much to the disappointment of women on both sides of their families. Instead, the couple took part in a ‘roka’ ceremony, which is a pre-wedding tradition in India. Mirani joked that because they’d already had the ceremony he didn’t “see the point” in formally asking for her hand in marriage.
Cleary on a high after the excitement of the evening, Mirani took to Twitter to make the customary social media announcement (because it’s never official until the Twitter picture).
Nitin Mirani was performing as part of Dubai Comedy Festival, which sees plenty of local and international comics take over the city. We recommend you catch Whose Line is it Anyway down at JBR on October 19, for improvised comedy that's bound to get a laugh. Famous funnymen Trevor Noah and Dave Chappelle are bringing their controversial jokes to Dubai this weekend.
