Charity events have a lot riding on them. Guests have paid $250 - $1000 a plate. The goal is to raise hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars. And there are always hiccups. Yet these events have to be both impactful and fun. That's where Anish comes in. He has performed at the world's biggest charity events at venues like Washington D.C's Kennedy Center, New York's Chelsea Piers, and San Francisco's Legion of Honor. And he knows how to bring tasteful hilarity to them. Some people bring him into emcee the event; others to have him just do pure, hilarious, clean stand-up comedy.
Organizations bring Anish back year after year, because he takes great care to make sure he gets to know the charity, the speakers, the auction items, and the themes for the night. Then he blends all that research with tasteful comedy to create a heartfelt and hilarious performance that feels like it was written just for their event, and ensures that guests will come back next year. That's why organizations bring him back year after year. For example, the America India Foundation has brought in Anish to emcee more than a dozen of their $500 - $1000 a plate galas around the world.
