Head to Whitefield for a rib-tickling show by The East India ComedyCulttureLead3

Get ready for a laughter riot as stand-up artistes line-up for Laugh OK Please this Friday. With its penchant for rib-tickling comedy, Evam’s contribution to the stand-up scene in the city continues to remain significant since its inception about two years ago. They are taking it up a notch with comedians from across the country, much like their previous editions. You’ve already seen their classiness at The Ghantas and their rage on EIC: Outrage. And the theme this time is ‘worst of comedy versus the worst of Bollywood’.
“This will be my third show at Laugh OK Please but the theme is brand new, and it will be juvenile and stupid. We are actually half way through our tour in India with this theme and it has been well received,” says Sorabh Pant, founding member of EIC. He further adds that the show will feature them taking a dig at Bollywood’s dynastic rule and explain why star kids like Suraj Pancholi and Sonakshi Sinha should not have children. “We will also do a MSG v/s Jurassic World to make a comparison on Bollywood’s way of making action films as opposed to Hollywood’s,” he adds.

Sorabh Pant is among India’s top 10 stand-up comedians. He was a writer on the show News On The Loose, anchored by Vir Das in 2008. What helped him cement his place as a stand-up artiste were his opening acts for Vir Das’ show Walking On Broken Das later that year. His first solo performance was called Pant on Fire, which came out in November 2009. “Jokes apart, we will also be addressing plagiarism in Bollywood. Like the disastrous movie Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’s sound track was copied from Game Of Thrones. We will be talking about such bad music and also we have a special rap song written about Bollywood,” says Pant.
Another increasingly popular stand-up comic in the scene today is Sahil Shah. He is known for his unstoppable puns and mental taxation. He is one of the founding members of the East India Comedy and his off-center one liners have taken his comedy across the country, with shows in over eight cities. “We will have an audience poll to figure out which film was actually the worst in Bollywood 2015,” adds Shah.
Joining these pros on stage is Sapan Verma. Having done over 700 shows in the last five years not just across India, but also in Barcelona, New York, Singapore and China, he promises “one hell of an experience”. “The show will obviously have a lot of jokes on Bollywood. We just end up watching so many Hindi movies and at the end of it, we even regret watching some of them. While we will take a dig at a few of those movies we will also be acknowledging the good ones,” says the founding member of East India Comedy.
April 1. 8 pm onwards. at Phoenix Market City, Whitefield. Tickets (Rs 400 upwards) on bookmyshow.com
