I was one of the few lucky people to have laughed out my guts at - Weirdass Ham-Ateur Nights this Friday night. Stand-up comedy is a relatively new concept in India and the man responsible for making people pay him money to hear him crack jokes about them and their city is the most talented Vir Das.
The entry fee of 300/- for a two hour show was easily the best money I have spent in a long time. The show gave a chance to 7 amateur stand-up comedians to make the audience laugh. The highlight was clearly, the 'laugh till the stomach, the jaw, the cheek, the mouth hurts' performance by India's first comic rock band - Alien Chutney. Cherry on the cake was a mind-blowing, innuendo-full, session of jokes by the awe-inspiring Vir Das himself. If you ever get a chance, you must not miss this show.
P.S: Met an awesome group of people at the show. Know most of them through twitter, you can follow them for their funny one-liners. Here goes the list: @thevirdas @sunainak, @nitinsgr, @s4sukhdeep, @nithinkd, @mojorojo. My twitter handle is @priyankakhot :-)
