Friendly, professional, and ridiculously funny! I enjoyed working with Rakhesh and highly recommend him.
— Emmylou MacCarthy (Emmylou Loves)
Savvy material
— Chortle
Rakhesh exudes charm from the moment he walks on stage, and builds on that charm with exquisitely crafted comedy that has the audience falling into the aisles with laughter. He’s a must see!
— Tim Young (ABC Radio, Locally Grown Funnies)
Rock solid laughs!
— Janet MacLeod (Local Laughs)
Rakhesh had the Dirty Angel crowd slapping the tables. I’ve never heard a crowd still laughing a full minute after a comic has left the stage!
— Aidan Nicolson (Dirty Angel Comedy)

on and off stage
