On the surface Don Biswas is a straight forward and old fashioned gag merchant. However, he does talk about a wide variety of unique subjects from having Dyspraxia and mild Asperger's Syndrome (both learning difficulties that effect coordination and social skills) to politics. Also thrown into the mix, in his set, are razor sharp one-liners.
When discussing politics Don very much takes an alternative view on the subject, thus talking about the lack choice available in the current system, mainstream media censorship to conspiracy theories, among other topics. However, all of this is done in a tongue and check way with plenty of gags, meaning he is able to play to a wide variety of rooms.
His comedy has lead him to be a part of Abnormally Funny People a specialist comedy show for comics, who talk about their disabilities and difficulties. Don also has done school's tour support (only for certain dates) for comedian John William’s solo shows My Son's not Rainman.
Up to 40 minutes sets. Paid 20’s Downstairs at The Kings Head, Out of Bounds, Desi Central among other clubs.
School tour support for John Williams show My Son's not Rainman

'Don Biswas is a unique performer who boldly takes to the stage despite suffering from Dyslexia, Asperger's Syndrome and Dyspraxia. A phenomenal gag teller with an engaging stage persona, Don Biswas shows all the signs of a truly great comic'. Hecklers comedy club
'Don Biswas put more emphasis on slick one-liners, which made much of his Asperger's and Asian background. But his best joke and my favourite of the night had nothing to do with either, and was all the better for confounding the expectations he had created'. Londonisfunny.com
