You might not have heard of him yet, but trust us, that’s going to certainly change in the near future. Sudarsan Ramamurthy aka Soda is a struggling artist, slowly gaining momentum with his hilarious puns that take a moment to sink in, and intellectual comedy aimed at a broad spectrum of audiences who can’t get enough of him.
Soda is a Chennai based comedian, who as he puts it is “suspiciously well versed in Hindi”. He seamlessly combines both Hindi and English within his jokes and puns, which makes the comedy experience a whole lot better. His content is 18+ and mostly revolves around his past experiences and mishaps, which always seem funny to others but not to the poor Soda.
His latest event was hosted by WordZoned, who did a spectacular job by warming up the audience with the opening artist, Krishna Subramanian, and the awkward yet funny Bindu Rao. They set the right tone for the main act that followed. You must surely check them out if you attend any WordZoned events in the future.
As soon as the opening acts successfully managed to get the crowd pumped, Soda hopped onto to the stage like a fizzed out bottle of Soda (pun intended), beaming with energy that surprisingly lasted for the entirety of the show. He started by comparing the similarities between Game of Thrones and Mahabharatha and moved on to making hilarious jokes about his own family (especially his poor old grandma). He also interacted well with the audience and slightly yet subtly picked on every race possible in the audience.
Soda is truly one of the funniest comedians out there. His body language on stage seems natural and his jokes flow with much ease. His intellectual comedy can sometimes go over our heads and might leave you scratching yours. But don’t fret, because his jokes take a while to sink in and once you understand his hilarious puns, you will with utmost certainty be craving for more.
If you want to experience a night full of puns and comedy, with no care for being politically correct, then this show is for you! Soda will make you laugh till your belly starts hurting. So what are waiting for? If he’s on your radar, make sure you book his tickets. You can also get a sneak peek of his humor on his self-titled YouTube channel where he uploads teasers of his live shows. Make sure you check them out!
