A very good idea of relieving your stress from your monotonous and hectic week would be to relax yourself midweek. Since you're halfway done through the week, you need the pampering, and since you have half more to go, you need the motivation too. Now a lot of people have various ways to pamper themselves but honestly, ever since I have started going to stand-ups, it has become my thing. Nothing better than sipping your beer and laughing your lungs out. Chalta Hai Comedy certainly understands us and always stages these midweek stand-up shows. This time, they had one at Razzberry Rhinoceros and here's how my evening went.
So if you're a 90s kid like me, you're probably still living in the past. The songs, the games, the movies, we compare everything to "our time". When I went to Razzberry, I realized I'm not the only one. Chalta Hai Comedy's Back To The 90's saw all the 80s and 90s kids (well, then kids now adults) sipping on their cocktails and mocktails waiting for some humor coming their way. The show started with RJ-cum-YouTuber-cum-comedian Sucharita as the host for the evening. One glance and you know she has gotten the funny bit down pat. After requesting (more like threatening) people to fill in the seats ahead, the show saw its first act for the night by Punit Pania.
Now this wasn't the first time I was attending Punit's show but the guy, despite being old (his words, not mine) manages to make us laugh every time. As long as you are open to a little criticism and don't take offense easily, the man has got some good content up his sleeve which will make you giggle, or laugh, or sometimes even rofl; just giving a heads up.
Next act was by Andy Regu. Without any exaggeration, I don't remember when was the last time I laughed so much after an Akash Mehta act. The guy is almost as good as him and he narrated everything from his childhood, from being single to sex life (aah, the decadence of laughing at others). This one I'd say was the best act of the night.
The final act in the line was Utsav Chakraborty. If there's anything that I realized during this act, it was that the guy should probably be a singer. No, I am not saying his comic timing wasn't good – it was great. He did a good job with the GoT content. But I think the guy would make a great singer. If you want to know why, you should probably attend some of his stand-ups and you'll know what I'm talking about.
So as the night progressed I was waiting for a karaoke session that was promised to us, but due to extended duration and less crowd, they decided to cancel it. I was still happy because the staff was generous enough to give me an extra mocktail to compensate for that. So here's the deal – Chalta Hai Comedy has got some really nice stuff to watch out for, especially when they have a mocktail/beer inclusive in their ticket along with happy hours. What more does one need midweek? Catch them next time they're performing in the city.
P.S- Here's my fan moment with the performers
