He’s cute, he’s hilarious, and he’s gay. Navin Noronha excels at two things – making people laugh and leaving the stage with a handful of phone numbers. His comedy mostly revolves around his experiences from growing up in a Catholic family in suburban Mumbai while being “as gay as one could imagine”.
Walking onto the stage with pride and confidence in his eyes, Navin Quickly embraced his sexuality, confided in the audience, and told the guys not to worry about their wives or girlfriends leaving them for him. Huge relief for the guys, TBH! He speaks about the difficulties of growing up in a Catholic family where being gay is considered to be a sin.
Speaking about religion, Navin is quite happy about going to hell for his sins, considering the fact that hell is going to be a paradise for him because of all the action he will be getting there. He takes quick digs at Baba Ramdev and makes observations about religions.
His character will make you laugh, his journey of getting out of the closet will surely make you tear up but most importantly you will have a great time. His content is largely in English but he transitions between English and Hindi for a wholesome experience. His delivery and transition from one joke to another is seamless and his overflowing energy is contagious. You will surely succumb to it and burst out in laughter.
