Neel Kolhatkar


Presented by Brisbane Comedy Festival and Frontier Comedy

Neel believes brown men need to be sexually objectified more.

Neel hates political correctness and hates people that say they hate political correctness- and he will tell you why. Rapid fire, accent slinging, no holds barred yet boyishly charming Neel is straight-shooting and boundary-breaching. His “disarming charisma” (The Guardian) will leave you comfortable enough to laugh embarrassingly loudly.

He’s collected 5 star reviews across the globe, performing to sell-out crowds and leaving in his wake a trail of dazzled critics and adoring fans. #ObjectifyNeel is an examination of race, youth, culture and politics through the lens of a cynically optimistic, barbarously honest 22yr old.


You need to see Neel Kolhatkar...he will have you wishing the show hadn’t been only an hour.

Broadway Baby

Clever, incisive and outright hilarious.

Theatre People
