Time Out says
The Surprise Show is more than just a clever name—each edition of the show hosted by Sachin Shaan and Anish Mitra features special guests from the world of stand-up dropping in unannounced. Past guests have included Jim Gaffigan, Judah Friedlander and Todd Barry. The Surprise Show is one of the most diverse regular shows in the city, highlighting performers from all different backgrounds. The only thing about the show that won't be a surprise is the good time that you're going to have.
