Sorabh Pant's My Baby Thinks I'm Funny

Monthly Comedy Nights: Boudoir

​​Boudoir Comedy Nights have been the highlight of my past few Saturday nights for a while now, and I could not even contain my joy when I got to know that:

B) My husband is the opening act for him!!!

OMG. Anticipation equalled my sheer excitement to a be apart of the show and I literally could not wait to be a part of the audience of this perfect line up!

Opening Act: Pawan Manghnani

Some local magic was added to this event with an opening act by Blogger, Theatre Artist & Stand-Up Comedian Pawan Manghnani, before the show. Pawan has opened the show for Sorabh back in 2012 at The Address Dubai Marina so this was a good comeback!

The D-day arrives and after a little nervous banter with everyone who showed up, I sat there waiting to see my husband initiate the show in a process they call "warm-up", and boy, it was one hell of a warm-up. He, oh so confidently owned the stage and spoke about his traditional parents, and how arranged marriage was their hobby almost and some random but such relatable experiences any married couple may have faced. I was just enthralled by the whole thing and so were people around me, including my my aunt and cousin who were just in awe to see Pawan Manghnani perform. I may be biased but the audience chuckle around me just confirmed my hubby was punny; err funny! 

Headliner: ​Sorabh Pant

We are glad to bring to Dubai a brand new show i.e 'My Baby Thinks I'M FUNNY' by one of India's funniest men, Sorabh Pant. Sorabh was born to make people laugh and he is a natural at doing so.

The Times of India has rated Sorabh Pant among India's top 10 stand-up comedians. Sorabh was a writer on the show News On The Loose, anchored by Vir Das on CNBC-TV18 in 2008. What helped him cement his place as a stand-up artist were his opening acts for Vir Das's show Walking On Broken Das later that year. His first solo performance was called Pant on Fire which came out in November 2009. 2011 saw the release of his first novel titled Wednesday Soul. He's also the founder of India's busiest comedy company, The East India Comedy. Pant's show Traveling Pants is heading to Delhi in September 2014.

​Show: "My Baby Thinks I'M Funny"

Sorabh Pant wanted a dog. His wife wanted a baby. So, they had a baby. And, neither of them have slept since. In his new stand-up special, Pant talks about the wonderful insanity of becoming a father. Proceeds from this show go straight to Pant's son's pre-school funds. And, maybe college.
I did understand the need for the opening act, because when Sorabh Pant was introduced the audience was ready, and so in the zone! Any words I say will fall short to describe just how AMAZING Mr. Pant is in what he does. I was honestly a bit edgy about the topic at first but the actual reality is anything the man says is riotous!
​His sense of humour is boisterous and he makes everything he is saying sound hilariously valid. I found myself agreeing while laughing so hard about baby-isms and you guys, I don't even have a baby! There were jokes about everything you can imagine, about how him and his wife conceived, pregnancy period, having a baby finally and then something about gender discrepancies and how obviously girls are better. LOL.
​Humour is something people inherently enjoy, but there also needs to be something wrong, unsettling, and threatening in some way, and while we address them as violations, comedians use them as one-liners as a part of their set. It is this risk-taking, this truth telling that makes people howl uncontrollably and every member of EIC does that! That is one of the reasons their shows are sold out and people actually cannot wait for more! They are my favourite people at the moment for comical relief, led by none other than Sorabh Pant. The baap of comedy.
​If you guys sat this one out, make sure you get your butts to the next one whenever there is one, and we promise to your cheeks will hurt and your mascara might flow because of laughing and crying at the same time. 
​PS: Mark Twain once said that ​“The secret source of humor itself is not joy, but sorrow. There is no humour in heaven.”  #BabiesMakeYouFunny.
