Stand-up comedy seems to be gathering its grip on India and doing it well. Humour, till date, remains the one way that makes everything approachable. It lets you talk about things and laugh at adversities, and maybe just gather how stupid we have been.

When they called students dangerous.
University students. Powerless, unarmed university students.
And let's accept it. There's no other place that'll give you variety or diversity enough to make the amount of content we do. Abaadi hi itni hai, kuch toh hote hi rehta hai.
