The famed Comedy Store UK was in Mumbai (Jun 4-7) with Ian Stone, Sean Meo and Paul Tonkinson, three top comedians that have taken Britain by storm. The Store’s first tour in Mumbai had the trio bringing the house down with their brand of humour that consisted mainly of one-liners and spontaneous jokes, choosing people from the audience as subjects for their jests. The audience were thrilled to bits and rolled in laughter for the most part, cheering the comedians till the end.
Says Mahika Rastogi, “The guys were actually funny. There were no dry jokes. Not something I’ve seen before live or on the television. I thoroughly enjoyed the show, it was worth the ticket price.”
The shows at Blue Frog, NCPA and ITC Grand Maratha were sold out completely to an audience that included theatre personalities and Bollywood stars, some of which attended two shows in a row.
Comedy Store UK is one of the premier comedy clubs in UK and has been around for 30 years, churning out world-class performances by comedians including Russell Peters and Robin Williams. This is Comedy Store UK’s first tour to the city and hopes to open a branch at Phoenix Mills soon.
