Friday’s best TV: The Big Asian Stand-Up; Peng Life

  • The Guardian - TV News
Eshaan Akbar and Emily Lloyd-Saini provide some laughs, while chicken shop connoisseur Elijah Quashie reviews Segways, watches and more

10pm, BBC Two

Nish Kumar hosts this standup showcase over two nights as part of the BBC’s Big British Asian Summer. It is a smart, very funny alternative to the plodding middle-of-the-road-fest of Live at the Apollo. Highlights of tonight’s show include Eshaan Akbar talking about his parents’ casual racism towards each other and Emily Lloyd-Saini relating an encounter with a flirty waxing technician. Looking for more laughs? Edinburgh Nights with Nish Kumar follows at 11.05pm, in which he takes a look behind the scenes at the festival. Sophie Harris
