Comedy show ‘Who Stands in Line Anyway’ coming to Dubai

Some say the best kind of comedy is improvised, and with that logic, one of the best comedy nights around is coming to Dubai for a special one-night gig.

The Junction at Alserkal Avenue is setting up ‘Who Stands In Line Anyway?’, a completely improvised comedy gig with some of the best improvisers from South Asia.

The night of laughter falls on Wednesday August 28 from 8pm onwards, featuring improvisers Ali Gul Pir, Saad Haroon, Amtul Baweja, and local comedy circle king Salman Qureshi.

Dubai's very own Asad Raza Khan will host the show, and act as game master. If you’ve seen Whose Line Is It Anyway?, you’ll know exactly what you’re in for.

Expect an evening filled with cackles, as the show will have comedy games, jokes, and plenty of audience participation. Expect to get picked on.

The show promises to have crowds in fits with material on romance, relationships, cricket, politics, shawarma, karma, and a whole lot more.

“The key to lift the local arts and comedy scene, is to have a mix of international and local in the events”, says Asad Raza Khan, the host of the show and local star.

“We could not have asked for a better mix of talent to entertain the Dubai audiences and showcase what we are doing locally to the world. Get ready to sing, dance, laugh, and be part of the live entertainment as it is a night of improvisational comedy.”

Fancy a laugh (and even a chance to star in the show)? Tickets are priced at AED150, and you can get them right now by visiting

Just because summer is coming to an end doesn’t mean the laughter has to stop, as The Laughter Factory has announced its comedy line-up for September.

Looking for a bit of culture instead? Alserkal Avenue’s 1x1 Art Gallery is setting up a brand-new exhibition definitely worth checking out.
