Biryani Man turns to Mr Family Man!

By, Tharanie Rajendran

We all know Praveen Kumar as the Biryani Man. Close enough to Batman being named after his weakness, Praveen was very well known for much-relatable weakness (at least for me) THE LOVE FOR BIRYANI!

I remember him linking veg briyani to the a far relative advising you, oh how accurate! Also, our common hate for Upma made me his fan. I'm so happy that this Kanchipuram "boy" (sort of) is going international with his new show and we swear we cannot be more excited to welcome Praveen Kumar to Malaysia for his new stand up-special "Mr Family Man" on 30th March 2019 at PJ Live Arts Centre!

This 37-year-old family man is all set to bring his real life experience from his wife and his cute little daughter on a full flashed 85-minutes show. To those who have watched his "36 Vayadhinile" he discusses a portion of his experience with his daughter, and I remember I was laughing like a retarded seal in my office cubicle (during lunch, don't judge me!).

“Much of it is from my personal experience. For instance, I will talk about what I did when a rat entered our kitchen or what happened when I took my wife for shopping. That will make it relatable to everyone,” said Praveen Kumar.

We can guarantee that this show is family friendly, as Praveen consciously avoids profanities and I genuinely believe that makes him one of his kind in this show biz. It has definitely granted Praveen with a signature brand that does not rely on creating a shock value, and positions him as a unique entertainer.

“I make sure that my shows are clean comedies. Adult jokes don’t excite me anymore. And since I want families to enjoy my shows, I steer clear of anything that can embarrass parents and children in each other’s company,” he says.

‘Mr. Family Man’ is a stand-up comedy show for the whole family to enjoy. Tickets are on sale online at with tickets starting as low as RM 90. Praveen Kumar’s Mr. Family Man is presented by Selangor & Federal Territory Malayalee Association (SFTMA), organized by Phoenix PR, and sponsored by Shaiba Vision.
