Anatomy of Awkward by Kautuk Srivastava – Awkwardness Decoded

Social life has divided people into three categories – extroverts, introverts and awkwards. Extroverts are outgoing and socially confident people (basically the people who initiate and execute the plan). They are present at every party, ever! Introverts, on the other hand, are shy and reticent, more into themselves and least bothered about the world outside their room. And, Awkwards are people who fit nowhere. They cannot initiate a conversation neither can end one, they do not want to attend a party but can’t say no, they don’t like giving a shit about other people and yet want to please them. Well, they are simply awkward. This stand-up by Kautuk Srivastava was dedicated to the third type.

The Anatomy of Awkward was dissected by Kautuk at the cool new performance venue The Cuckoo Club, Bandra on 2nd June. It is a very cute place for a bunch of awkward people to sit and enjoy a performance while sipping on a cup of coffee/tea. The show was organized by Chalta Hai Comedy (Punit Pania), again (why not – the debut was all sold out).

The host of the show was Raunaq Rajani who came with his set of jokes on vegetarianism and the people sitting in the front row. However, things did not end up as they usually do. The roasting fired back and Raunaq got roasted instead. Thanks to the one guy sitting on the front row, whose name cannot be revealed. Sharad (whoops, couldn’t keep it in) made Raunaq not question the front row for the rest of the time he had on stage (not kidding). Whatever happened, whoever was roasted, the opening act warmed all of us for the awkwardness that was coming next with Kautuk.

Kautuk started with his years of observation and notes that he has taken to finally decode a few awkward situations. He discussed parties, small talk, relationships and how he got his girlfriend kidnapped for a moment on his first date after the Tinder match. He also shared anecdotes on how to cope up with the awkwardness or how to just avoid it. He surely did a lot of homework for this material. He was great at not picking on people because the audience was as awkward as him (or maybe because he saw what happened to Raunaq during his act). He also accepted that the bunch of people sitting were the best audience, ever! (like every audience, ever!)

Kautuk made sense and was humorous at the same time, hence passing the basic rule of good comedy. The show was definitely funny if not awkward. The awkwards will enjoy it thoroughly, pinky promise.

A tip for the comedians who pick up on the audience: If you do not want to get roasted by someone sitting on the first row, check for a guy named Sharad in the audience. He is a tall man (in his thirties, probably) and has a pointed nose. If yes, avoid asking him questions. If no, sigh and continue.
