My name is Don Biswas and I have been performing stand-up comedy since mid 2007. My unique set combines both razor sharp one-liners, with humour about having Dyspraxia (organization and coordination difficulties) and mild traits of Asperger's Syndrome and the effect it has had on me, while coming from a middle class Indian family. Also thrown into the mix are quirky observational, political and topical humor.
