Press Release: Indian comics are the latest to get on the ethnic stand-up comedy DVD bandwagon. Indian Invasion Comedy - Civilizing the West features five Indian comedians.
With comic Russell Peters such an international hit it is a logical marketing idea to focus a DVD on other comics of Indian origin. The comics cover, of course the "Indian with a dot not the John Wayne kind" material and discuss being mistaken for a terrorist. There is more to it of course with material oninternet dating and sex, and political correctness. Family is also a topic these comics address.
The comics on Indian Invasion are Vidur Kapur and Mark Saldana who have both been seen at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. Rajiv Satyal opened for Russell Peters, Dave Chappelle, and Kevin Nealon. Vijai Nathan has been highlighted by NBC's Standup for Diversity, and XM Radio describes Dalia's act as "Hysterically funny off-the-wall humor."
The DVD also includes exclusive backstage interviews with all five comedians. Running time is approximately 110 minutes.
