The Butter Chicken series is back this year with its South Asian comedy heroes in a new live sketch for audiences to laugh, cheer, tap their feet, applaud wildly, and laugh some more. South Asian Arts and Bollywood Shenanigans present it at CBC’s Studio 700 from May 9 to 12, with late night shows on May 11 and 12.
Presented by South Asian Arts and Bollywood Shenanigans, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Chicken!: The Fellowship of the Butter Chicken! dishes up a fresh spin on the laugh-till-you-cry, edgy, racy, fast-paced, yummy comedy that previously satisfied the palates of thousands of theatre-goers in I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Chicken!—The Best Of Show, The Butter Chicken Reloaded, and The Butter Chicken’s Back… Alright.
The venue is CBC’s Studio 700, and the players—the fellowship of comedy heroes—are Kulveer Taggar, Aga Postawska, Munish Sharma, Leena Manro, Sandhya Sharma, and Kallol Mitra. Race, sex, diaspora, parental expectations, village life: no topic is out of bounds for these comedy crusaders as they act, sing, dance, and Bollywood their brains out in brand-new skits penned by the Bollywood Shenanigans crew.
