It’s official, social distancing is the only thing to do right now. Coronavirus is travelling across the globe, and self-quarantining can really slow down its spread. And while you might see this as an opportunity to catch up on your reading, workout at home for 30 straight days, pick up a hobby or binge-watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine again (there’s no judgement here)…actually your favourite comics do too.

Forget observational sets, this is the most relatable they’ve ever been. Don’t believe us? Please enjoy this compilation of some of India’s best-known comedians trying to entertain themselves at home. It’s both a little sad and also quite wholesome.

This article was first published in DeadAnt, an online publication and new-media venture focused on stand-up comedy in India.

Angad Singh Ranyal is living life dangerously, and wearing chappals in his bed, while watching TV. One user basically said what we were all thinking: “Bed pe if I wear flip-flops I will receive a flying flip-flop from my mother… #brownpeoplethings 🙄”

(Something to try doing because you have nothing else to do: Say ‘Flying Flip Flop’ three times, really fast!)

Errr…Rahul Subramanian is feeling funky?
