APRIL 6/7: Crackhouse presents Deepak Chandran (IND/SG) ft Aaron Aw

Deepak Chandran's rise in the world of stand-up comedy has been nothing short of spectacular. A regular headliner now across South & South East Asia, as well as being an established host at Comedy Masala Singapore. Deepak’s comedy is mostly observational, with a twist of politics, issues with middle class life and of course him being an IT Engineer. Deepak is also an avid cook, but unfortunately can only make 3 variations of Paneer, before starting over again (with Paneer).

At sixteen, he was also playing the trombone, and in 2001 was accepted into Arkansas Tech University School of Music, studying under Dr. Will Kimball.
