Stand-up comedian Nimesh Patel coming to Orlando this week

Comedian and Emmy-nominated writer Nimesh Patel will headline multiple shows at the Orlando Funny Bone this week.

The first night of shows will take place on Friday, April 19, at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m., at the Orlando Funny Bone (9101 International Drive in Orlando).

On Saturday, April 20, Patel will return to the Orlando Funny Bone for additional performances at 6:30 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Patel’s first writing job came after Chris Rock saw him perform stand-up comedy. Rock hired Patel to write for the 2016 Academy Awards and invited him to go on tour.

In 2017, Patel became the first Indian American writer on the sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live, primarily writing for the “Weekend Update” segment. The following year, he was nominated for an Emmy Award in the “Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series” category.

Patel has also written for A Little Late with Lilly Singh and The White House Correspondents Dinner. Additionally, he also served as a producer for Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.

In the past two years, Patel has amassed millions of views with the following self-released stand-up specials: “Jokes To Get You Through Quarantine,” “Thank You, China,” and “Lucky Lefty.”

Tickets are still available for the upcoming shows in Orlando, ranging from $37 to $67. The event is for ages 21 and up only, and guests will need a valid ID to enter the venue.
