About Eshaan Akbar

Eshaan can be seen starring as Principal Lakhani in season 4 of Netflix’s hit show, Sex Education.

He is an accomplished radio presenter, host of the But Where Are You Really From podcast on BBC Sounds and the European award winning Nine Twenty Nine podcast from Fiverr, as well as his own shows on the BBC Asian Network and LoveSport, with many guest appearances across other networks. He is also regularly heard as a guest on Have a Word.

In 2023, he toured the UK with his show, ‘The Pretender’, (“refreshingly funny hour that suggests a big talent in the making ****” The Times). He has performed three sell out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe – ‘Not for Prophet’ (2017), ‘Prophet Like it’s Hot’ (2018), and ‘Infidel-ity’ (2019) as well as sell out London transfers at the Soho Theatre.

Eshaan has opened for Micky Flanagan, including 9 sold-out dates at the O2, and has supported Dane Baptiste, Hal Cruttenden, Jan Ravens and Rory Bremner on tour.

Previously of Barclays Wealth and Merton Council, Eshaan holds a Masters in Global Governance and Public Policy and an undergraduate degree in Economics, Finance and Management. He has written articles for The Guardian, The Times, The Huffington Post, Happiful magazine and others. He is also a former Bollywood dance choreographer. Is there anything he can’t do? Yes. He can’t tie balloons once he’s blown them up. Which made his job as a children’s entertainer very short-lived.
