“If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they'll kill you.” – Oscar Wilde
Now a days, the comedians of the country seem to have taken this brilliant piece of advice seriously; and why not?! Say the bitter truth with a generous dose of humour and you are sorted!
Bangalore will soon be a host to all such comic artists. A one of its kind stand-up comedy fest, the Bengaluru Comedy Festival will be hosted from the 9th to the 13th November, will see the city turn into a comedy urban. With the who’s who of the nation’s comic scene expected to descend, the audiences are promised a laugh riot that they won’t forget in a long long time. (Or at least until the next edition of Bengaluru Comedy Festival is out!)
As one of the most awaited upcoming events in Bangalore, the fest will showcase fifty plus home- brewed and international artists. Every performer who is scheduled to be there, is a star in their own right. “Each one with their own talent and intelligence will ensure that the crowd has variety on their platter,” says Sumendra Singh, who is the organiser. Daniel Fernandes will woo the crowd with his witty dialogues while Kenneth Sebastian who is known to blend music with comedy will steal the audiences’ hearts! Radhika Vaz, who is the unabashed queen of comedy will come as an icing on the cake! “It is an opportunity for Bengalureans to treat themselves to a bigger, better laugh,” Singh says. This is exactly what makes the festival different from the other comedy festivals across the country.
Riding high on the charts of happy positive buzz, the popularity of this laugh riot is hardly questionable! The individually ticketed comedy shows will also be followed by an after-party. The festival area is open to everyone and will be made even more interesting with comic installations, live podcast, fan jams, art installation as well as drinking and dining options.
The festival is going to be on such an enormous scale that the audiences will be treated to not just regular comedy, but different types of comedy like as live stand-up comedy, improve comedy and musical comedy as well!
With passes to this second-to none comedy festival now available on popular ticketing platforms like BookMyShow, don’t you think it’s high time you booked yours?
