Dharmander Singh was born in Birmingham in the mid 70’s as a first generation British Asian. He started in theatre from a young age and graduated to stand up comedy in his late 20’s. He successfully ran the Birmingham comedy club “Custard Balti”. In 2008, Dharmander did an early “Brexit” and moved to Germany. Based in Berlin, he has been entertaining crowds from Amsterdam to Dubai for over 15 years.
A comedy festival regular, Dharmander performed at Edinburgh Fringe and Birmingham Comedy Festival in 2017 with his acclaimed one-man show “Bollywood and Birmingham to Berlin and Brexit” for the first time. This show travels in regular intervals through European countries such as Austria, Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic and Italy. Last year he was part of the Edinburgh Fringe again and also performed his show in the Angel Comedy Club in London, in Birmingham and in Amman, Jordan.
He has appeared on BBC radio on several occasions and featured in the Scottish BAFTA winning film “Crying with Laughter”. His style of comedy is light-hearted, captivating, warm, entertaining and energetic with smatterings of social and political commentary.
“Dharmander’s mega-watt smile and brilliantly energetic style will win you over.”
