Tickle your funny bone!

COMIC TIMING

If you can tickle the funny bone of people, here is your chance to express yourself. Delhiites can take part in Open Mic stand-up comedy night.

Presented by PowerPlay Sports Bar in Gurgaon, in association with Cheese Monkey Mafia, on January 12,  both amateur and professional comedians can participate in the event.

Sahil Ludhani, owner and founder of PowerPlay sport bar, says, “We are organising Open Mic to create a connection with the guests. It will give them a good opportunity to enjoy and add an element of laughter to their day.”

Usually, a comedian performs in front of a live audience, speaking directly to them.
Their performances are sometimes filmed for later release via DVD, the internet, and television. The performer is commonly known as a comic, stand-up comic, stand-up comedian or simply a stand-up.

In stand-up comedy, the comedian usually recites a fast-paced succession of humorous stories, shortjokes called and one-liners, which constitute what is typically called a monologue, routine or act.

Some stand-up comedians use props, music or magic tricks to enhance their acts. Stand-up comedy is often performed in comedy clubs, bars, colleges and theaters, but there are no real restrictions on where the craft can be performed.

Many smaller venues hold ‘open mic’ events, where anyone can take the stage and perform for the audience, offering a way for amateur performers to hone their craft and possibly break into professionalism.

In modern era many artists have come up and become popular as stand-up comedians, often starting from stage/films and proceeding to TV shows.

Stand-up is an art form that is openly devoted to getting immediate laughs from an audience above all else, unlike theatrical comedy which creates comedy within the structure of a play with amusing characters and situations. In stand-up comedy, feedback of the audience is instant and crucial for the comedian’s act.

Audiences expect a stand-up comic to provide a steady stream of laughs, and a performer is always under great pressure to deliver.
The event would start at 8 pm at the bar. The charge for the night is Rs 250 per person and it is redeemable against a beer or a drink.
