Gear up for a laugh riot as the Pundits are back with their latest
Welcome the Independence weekend with some cynicism and lots of laughter with city-based standup group, The Pundits (an arm of Crea Shakthi). Featuring regulars Murali Satagopan and Vikash Paula��along with Aravind Radhakrishnan, Mihir Kaushik and Abhishek Kumar, the best from their monthly open mic platform, Please Stand Upa��the group is back after a hiatus for a show based on a�?freedom, our need for it and the apparent lack of ita�?. We speak to them about comedy, their upcoming show and more.
Murali Satagopan: An entrepreneur at the helm of Brigge, a social networking app, and a former IT slave, Satagopan is glad to have survived the rut. a�?Sometimes the comedian in me cries to do something more, but ita��s hard to write quality content when you are short on time,a�? says the 27-year-old.
One quality Indians are losing?
Patience, because nothing seems better than yelling at a fellow Indian.
Aravind Radhakrishnan: He has performed with the likes of Chennai Comedy and Evam Standup Tamasha. a�?I make my wittiest jokes with a straight face. While it has cost me friends, the ones I have will stick around,a�? says the 27-year-old chartered accountant.
Which movie would you ban/cut?
All Salman Khan movies because they are worse than adult films, with no story line!
Vikash Paul: As a Bengali boy settled in Chennai, Paula��s routine will see him explore the dichotomies of his life. His double life as an accountant and comedian isna��t a bed of roses. a�?My parents think CA means big words like tax, seminar and lectures. Not a joke, literally,a�? says the 30-year-old.
The most serious thing youa��ve done?
CA. The only figures we see are on the balance sheet.
