Started stand-up in 2000, and was a finalist in the 2009 Scottish Comedian Of The Year competition.
Saj Chaudry at the 2009 Scottish Comedian Of The Year final
Saj Chowdhry produced a car crash of a set, swerving unpredictably all over the shop before becoming a fiery wreck. He came out playing to his strength – impersonations – with a suitably aggressive Joe Pesci rant. This messily jumped into a bizarre X-Factor pastiche, which in turn slammed into an ill-conceived routine about demanding children.
Chowdhry tells us he’s recently lost his job, and is now a stay-at-home dad, but as he talks about interviewers who have told him he was ‘overqualified’ for a job, he loses sight of all comedy and simply seems to be settling some scores.
Finally, we’re in the hack territory of airline security questions and the tediously smart-aleck responses to questions such as: ‘Did you pack your bags yourself?’ that surely everyone has thought of.
‘Overqualified’ is certainly not an objection he’s likely to encounter in his comedy career any time soon.
