Pav Rao


Standup Comedy

I've been performing stand-up since 2011 at clubs across the UK and Europe.

In 2016 I won the Bath Comedy Festival New Act of the Year Competition with a set that received this review:

'... This year’s winner, though, is Pav, who gives an intellectually thoughtful, though never patronising or preachy take on racism, genocide, social attitudes, and history generally, with a beautifully measured and timed delivery, every wry gag hitting its mark with a devastating accuracy that has the audience roaring. Comedy with brains and brawn. It’s a fitting end to a great festival.'

I also got through to the semi-final of the 2017 BBC New Comedy Awards. The set I did in the heats to reach this can be seen above.
