Tarun Mohanbhai

Tarun Mohanbhai's experience as a professional stand-up dates back to 1998 in New Zealand. He has appeared in 11 International Comedy festivals around the world from his native New Zealand to South Africa.

He is a founding member of the touring showcase ‘New Zealand’s ‘Brat Pack' with Rhys Darby, Chris Brain and Terry Frisby.  He has performed stand-up in USA, Canada Australia, South Africa and Malaysia and in the UK.  Tarun works on a regular basis on the pro circuit in New Zealand and whenever he can in Australia.

“Tarun is a natural entertainer” Theatre Review

“The thick accents he did pull out had the room roaring” New Zealand Herald.

“D’Arranged Marriage is a testimony to Tarun’s slick skills as a stand up comic. He never faltered as he moved from character to distinct character in split seconds. There was neither costume change or intermission but the audience was too busy laughing to notice.” The Star Malaysia
