Comedy in India can be called stereotyped and with a peculiar flavour of jokes and stand up acts. It is certainly not as it is in certain other countries. Certain bars have been set for the stand up artists because of one of the best comedians the nation has seen in the last 3 decades. Johnny Lever has been instrumental in setting the audiences on a kind of laughter ride which they never experienced before. He has set an example for all the comedians of even our age and been an inspiring figure in the Indian cinema with his crude one-liners and wit. He developed a passion for mimicry and stand-up comedy in the early 80’s. Inspired by watching comedians like Johnny Walker, Kishore Kumar and Mehmood in films.
Like other comedy scenes, most plots suffer from a weak structure and a lacklustre script. Here in the other shows or with the other artists and therefore, it is equally important to be the comic person and make people laugh at you and your dialogue delivery sometimes. For some a wardrobe malfunction is the idea of humour, but with Johnny Lever you are surely going to take a U-turn about the common notions about comedy! This man’s timing, dialogue delivery and the punchlines are still so effective that you would be taking medicines after you watch his performance. He has received 13 Filmfare Awards nominations in Best Comedian Category, and has won the award twice.
If you ask anyone in the country about the comedians who they would love to see, Johnny Lever will always be the first name on their minds. He ensures his audience remains glued to his acts and laughing with some quality entertainment and endless dose of giggles every time he performs! We know the cricket season is on and while you’re prepping up for the ICC Champions Trophy starting from June 1, but do check this top comedy event in Mumbai and go on a laughing spree with your friends and family. Book your passes now for Johnny Lever Live and do some good to your dull and humdrum weekends.
