6. Quarter Life Crisis, Taylor Tomlinson
She’s halfway through her twenties and she’s had enough. Taylor Tomlinson, who is too old to party and too young to settle down, takes a swipe at her life choices. ‘Quarter-Life Crisis’ is a wonderfully relevant and amusing take on so many things that the ordinary person faces on a daily basis, and she sheds her comic light on them.

7. Homecoming King, Hassan Minaj

You can’t go wrong with this pick, which is narrated in his trademark self-deprecating style with his distinct voice.

9. Son Of Patricia, Trevor Noah
Noah’s South African background and upbringing collide with his recent American experience, resulting in amusing and human juxtapositions.

10. Almost Famous, Russel Peters
Russell returns to his signature ethnic gags and crowd participation.
