This show stars very special guest Kabir "Kabeezy" Singh...
Kabir "Kabeezy" Singh is Fresh off the debut season of "Inside Jokes" on and currently streaming on "Amazon Prime " which premiered in Sept 2018. Kabir is One of the nation's fastest-rising comedy stars. Kabir Singh is a huge crowd-pleaser with an abundance of energy, an in-your-face attitude and clever material. He stands out as a Star on and off Stage and is regularly loved by Men and Women of all ages. Kabir began his Stand Up Comedy Career in 2009 where within 9 months he won the Bay Area Comedy Competition beating 170 other Comedians who were far senior than him in Stand Up which prompted him to focus and 100% dedicate himself to the world of Comedy but, this didn’t just happen overnight. Kabir didn’t just become a Comedian 9 years ago , He has been a Comedian all his life, just not Stand Up till 2009. Born in 1984 in Portland, Oregon to stereotypical Indian parents, Kabir Singh realized at an early age that it wouldn’t be easy making friends at school. Luckily for Kabir, he soon became known as the funniest Indian kid in Oregon — not too difficult considering he was the only Indian kid in Oregon. When he was nine, his family moved to Bombay, India where he was bullied and teased for being American which taught him how to make people laugh in no less than three languages just to make friends to survive. The first day of school four kids greeted Kabir with fists and kicks just for being different, 3 years later when it was time to go home those same 4 kids were crying and hugging him on his way out. At 12, Kabir moved back to the US where he was made fun of for being Indian! He went to 2 JR High Schools and 2 High Schools and all he did was make friends everywhere he went with his charm, out of pocket charisma and humor Kabir cleverly delivers his life experiences and the culture clashes of being an Indian in America and an American in India to the stage. Kabir has 2 sisters, one is a Doctor from Harvard and the other is a Lawyer in Long Beach, CA so you can imagine how proud his Family is that Kabir decided to grab a Mic and talk trash about them 7 days a week in front of strangers….So proud… Since Kabir began Stand Up Comedy he as accomplished amazing things that his friends, Family and Fans are all proud of. In 2012 Kabir taped his Stand Up Comedy TV debut just 3 and a half years in on the “Starz Network” for the TV series “StaannDUP!” hosted by Donnell Rawlings where he was featured as the first Comedians on Episode 1.That set eld to a Comedy Central Audition where he performed in front of Gabriel Iglesias who thirty seconds after Kabir got off stage, approached him and asked to be a part of Season 3 of “Stand Up Revolution” on Comedy Central where Kabir was again feature don Episode 1 as the First Comedian of the Season. Later that same year Kabir was the “San Francisco International Comedy Competition” by coming in first place in all 5 shows in the Final Round which was the first time that has happened in its rich 39 year history (which included past competitors like Dana Carvey, Robin Williams, Ellen Degeneres, Louis CK, Patton Oswalt, Marc Maron, Doug Stanhope and Dane Cook) and there was no looking back after that. Kabir has worked on numerous amounts of amazing projects including for the “Fox Network” including “The Family Guy”, “Laughs” on Fox and Hulu and the TV series game show “Punchlines”. in 2017 Kabir went up against over 1100 of the best Comedians all over America in the “NBC Stand Up” National Competition and was selected for the Top 8 Final Showcase at Hollywood Improv in front of a high level Industry filled audience where he absolutely killed the place which lead to several development deals and future opportunities.
