Alan is very excited to be here and we are excited to have him. I think Indians are really going to enjoy what Alan does. Alan has hypnotized hundreds of Indians before but never actually in India so it is a first for him too. From past experience we know Mumbai crowds love good comedy show and we expect this one to have local audiences rolling in the aisles. Tickets are selling fast already there is a real buzz about this in town so we expect it to be sold out.”

Also, KMy style of show, content and techniques are brand new to India and I am very excited to be able to share my gift with the people of the country. Thanks to UTV world Movies that they have given me an opportunity to come to India, I am sure I would entertain and give the audiences one of the funniest experiences they have ever had!”
