Comedy comes in different packages, but as long as it makes you laugh you don't really mind where it is coming from. Even if it means it stems from someone's rants. Having said that, Sorabh Pant is the guy who rants and makes you laugh and also makes money out of it. While comedy is not everyone's cup of tea, takes a lot of courage, impeccable comic timing and obviously good material. However, Sorabh is confident about his comedy probably because his baby thinks he is funny.
Sorabh is plain and simple obsessed with pant (his surname, probably), or so it seems. Every special of his is named after that, take Pant on Fire, Travelling Pants or Rant of the Pant. Or if Pant was not enough his Twitter handle is called Hankypanty, well that's sweet. Apart from this, Pant is extremely socially aware and has extravagant views on everything that has been a huge controversy or has the potential to become one. However, he has never been a part of any controversies…yet.
Sorabh Pant, a big name in the Indian comedy scene. He has done 1500+ shows in 75 cities around 15 countries. He has authored two books and is the founder of the East India Comedy. He has topped many top charting lists of comedians in the country and continues to stay at the top. If that's not all, he has opened for Wayne Brady and Rob Schneider during their India tour. One can keep ranting about his achievements as a comedian but let's just move on.
Pant's comedy makes a lot of sense and that's the reason he is one the most sought-after comedians in the country. His social commentary not only cracks you up but also keeps you up to date with a lot of important affairs. He rants about the stuff he strongly feels about, has strong opinions and a no-filter material (or so it seems).
Pant's stand-ups are actually more informative than most news channels. His general socially relevant topics of discussion are religion, sanitary pads, condoms, beef ban, politics, science, gay rights, and everything controversial that you know or not know about. Point being, he gives his opinion on these topics without boring you out of your guts. Although, these do get you in a danger zone of falling off your seats.
Sorabh Pant is intelligent and his views on everything makes for a good laugh (and also gets your brain to think). If you haven't heard him talk you can always check out his YouTube channel of the same name. You must catch him live by booking your tickets for his upcoming stand-up shows:
