Internationally acclaimed ,multi-award nominee, Ishi Khan has been making people laugh since her birth. She came out crying to everyone’s laughter. Her comedy cv began in 2008 when she started hosting her own 2 Funny Comedy events. She has been performing regularly on the comedy circuit ever since.

She has toured several solo shows.
Her most recent being. “Ishi Khan:I’mMigrant!” which sold out at Brighton Fringe 2021, Leicester Comedy Festival Nottingham Playhouse.
Ishi responds to current affairs through themes of unity, freedom & equality while exploring identity and belonging.

Ishi is a sentient being born to tickle, play and sing to the moon. Skipping along on the comedic yellow brick road, dancing through rain, sun and fairy dust, distracted by rainbows and shooting stars, she’s a unicorn rider. One day she hopes to do a cartwheel and ride a bike, not at the same time. She speaks English, Punjabi and fluent Cat.
