    Amit Tandon brings his unique brand of humour to the city with a solo show.

    Whether itai??i??s his quips on the middle class mentality orAi??his jibes at his PunjabiAi??upbringing, Amit Tandon is a standup comic whoAi??always draws the laughs. Bringing his ai???Best of Tandonai??i?? special to the city for the first time, the comedian says that the show is a compilation of five yearsai??i?? worth of material, and adds, ai???My comedy is clean and very non-political, and the show primarily talks about my family and my experiences of growing up in an Indian household.ai???

    Taking chances
    Tandon started off with standup comedy six years ago, at the age of 35 (when he was heading an HR firm), performing at open mic nights at a pub in South Delhi as an outlet for his creativity and a break from mundane corporate life. ai???There would be 20-30 people who would be drunk and supportive, and 10 of us would try our jokes on them,ai??? he recalls. Now, having performed across eight countries, and done over a thousand shows, ai???the married guyai??i?? has made his mark. Ask him about the label and he says, ai???It just stuck because most of my jokes emanate from my experience asAi??aAi??husband and a father.ai??? The Delhi-based observational comic, who singles out Vir Das as an artiste he admires for his variety of material, says that he has an ai???MBA styleai??i?? of working when it comes to writing. ai???Whenever I feel I have not done something new for a while, I announce a new solo and book an auditorium. Once the deadline is fixed, I startAi??panicking and write at a very fast pace,ai??? he elaborates.Ai??Having performed in Chennai before, the comic is excited about hisAi??specialai??i??sAi??debut in the city. ai???The audience here is very patient and gives you time to settle into your act,ai??? concludes Tandon.

    Rapid fire
    Who would win in a catfight between Hillary Clinton and Mamata Banerjee?
    Mamata Banerjee. A chappal always hits harder than a sandal (believe me, I know).
    ai??? Amit Shah and Donald Trump walk into a bar… And the bartender is shaken and stirred!
    ai??? Two traits that will give away the fact that one is Punjabi?
    If you start reciting the names of all the foreign countries you have been to,Ai??within 10 minutesAi??of any discussion, and if you know more than five reasons to eat, in addition to being hungry.
