“Authenticity combined with great writing & presence, Nitin has it all & he is on his way to the big league” – these were words by Hollywood legend JERRY LEWIS who was one of the judges for Laugh Factory’s “Funniest Person In The World 2015″ competition where Nitin was not only selected to represent UAE & India & flown down to Los Angeles & Las Vegas but also secured the number 4 position of ‘The Funniest Person In The World 2015′. The icing on the cake was when Steve Hofstetter – executive producer – confirmed that Mirani was picked up as one of the featured comedians by ‘Laughs’ on FOX Television USA. The show was aired at prime time. Nitin also recently hosted the Provogue Mr. India World 2015 in Mumbai & entertained audiences in Singapore for the Raymond 90-year celebrations held in Singapore. Mirani also had the crowd in splits at Shahrukh Khan’s 50th birthday bash held in Mumbai.
