‘Kanpur & River Ganga’ By Harsh Gujral
Harsh Gujral is from Kanpur, a city in Uttar Pradesh that is famous for all the wrong reasons, from spitting gutkha (tobacco) everywhere to being the crime capital of the state. He talks about the charms of his hometown, and also has a satirical take on the appalling condition that the sacred river Ganga is in today.

‘Politics In India, Instagram & Signboards’ By Munawar Faruqui
Munawar Faruqui pokes fun at his religion in this rather dark piece of stand-up comedy. He talks about growing up as a Muslim in Gujarat, and reveals the “main item” required for making a bomb. Besides, he explains why girls are much better at social media than boys, and why he believes Indians don’t know how to follow signboards.

‘Gareebon Ka Devta’ By Sumit Sourav
Sumit Sourav is a “niche comedian”, but really wants to be a “sellout comedian”. In this self-depreciating video, he reminisces about the time he was called “gareebon ka devta” (messiah of the poor) by someone. He also talks about his home, which he calls a “sex view apartment”.
