Nish Kumar returns for the second part of the stand-up showcase.

High on the bill will be Ahir Shah, who was nominated for an Edinburgh Comedy Award last year and whose Edinburgh Fringe show this year has been so popular that people have had to que for hours in the hope of seeing him. Also performing are Mawaan Rizwan, Sukh Ojla, Sunil Patel, and Mark Silcox – the only comedian I’ve seen giving chickpeas and ginger to his audience in a show that was less comedy and more medical lecture.

The Big Asian Stand-Up is on BBC Two at 22.00.
