Smartest comedian since George Carlin
Verified purchase
I haven't had so many belly laughs in years. This guy is so observant, his delivery is so personal, engaging, endearing and intimate that even if you don't quite get all the jokes he's still a joy to watch. Nothing is sacred, not Modi, not Trump, not even toilet paper! If you put Russell Peters, George Carlin, Jeff Dunham and Lily Tomlin in a room together you might, just might, get close.

Unapologetically Tamil but also UNFUNNY
Verified purchase
I don't understand what the criteria for comedy in Chennai is these days. This whole show is about random "jokes" strung together with some Tamil pop culture references. This is very clearly fully written and "by-hearted" by the "comedian" so he can come and deliver it. The irony is he points out the state-board students for "by-hearting" their material.
Most of the jokes fall flat and unless you are from Chennai, the observations aren't funny or interesting. This type of material is an insult to modern-day audience. It's very easy to play on the north-south divide and just tell "jokes" which have no intelligence to them. Is this the kind of "comedy" the intelligent and educated youth of Chennai deserve? Definitely not.

not one thing funny ---waste of time
Verified purchase
if people think this is comedy, that in itself would be comical. Did not find any of his jokes funny. Wasted 20 minutes of my life in the hope that it will be better., then gave up.

A hint of sadness and some frustration wrapped in funny lines
Verified purchase
I felt that aspects of his sadness and frustration were cleverly concealed in humour. He is creative, observant and I felt he could be a great asset for the film industry as well. Overall, he did make me laugh in situations that I managed to relate.

Kids cannot see this
Verified purchase
I used to watch lots of comedies, our people from india only using more sensitive words in comedies which parents don't want to allow kids to listen in very younger age. I personally don't like the way use words in standup comedies.
