Alex in Wonderland is my first solo standup special. This is a Tanglish (Tamil + English) musical comedy show. I had the fortune of performing Wonderland for about 125 times to 100,000 live audiences across the globe from mid-2017 to mid-2019. This show is now streaming on Amazon Prime.
Wonderland will take you down the memory lane, blending Tamil cinema music, philosophy and humor. If you do not understand Tamil, the subtitles will help you journey through wonderland. Well, that’s the idea! This show has won the hearts of Tamil diaspora across the globe, across age groups. Nothing is more soul-satisfying than seeing kids, parents, and grandparents sitting together, watching a show together, and having a healthy laugh. Please do catch the show on www.PrimeVideo.com and share your thoughts.
