Chapter One

Saad Haroon is one of the more renowned standup comedians that Pakistan can be proud to take credit for. He began his decade old journey with Black Fish, an improv comedy group. In the following video, he discusses the way his comedy has grown and the simplistic and minimalist philosophy behind it. More importantly, he discusses what he would like to achieve through his work in terms of how he wants it to affect his audience.

Chapter Two In this second video, we discussed the impact of social media and how it benefited him and how it irks him. He talks about world events and its contribution [or lack of] to his comedic routine. Don’t Worry Be Pakistani will be a show of how he has evolved from and through his previous standup comedy bits. Lastly he tells us why his shows have been an annual occurrence and how that has been and will be an asset to us.
