A Cure For Monday Blues.

Just got back from the Sami Shah stand up comedy show – it was brilliant. The jokes were great and kept the entire audience in fits. I’m really glad that events like these are happening in Karachi, it makes a weekend much more exciting, and makes the Monday blues vanish. They announced at the show that Blackfish would be performing next week, and that the ex-mc of Blackfish Saad Haroon would be having his stand up comedy show at Royale Rodayle on the 21st of November with a couple of other bands and another stand up comic [tickets are available at Agha’s from Monday onwards] so it seems that we’ll be laughing a lot the next weekend :)

    i was there too…got back home after dinner though…..

    but i dont know…..he seemed to be trying too hard at times……some were a bit out of line too….id rate the show 50-50……

    funny no doubt……but there was too much of an effort in telling people “this is a joke”…

    jokes, in my opinion, are to be in passing, the audience should be intelligent enough to get them. a show of wit, rather than overt expressionism.

    an interesting change to the mundane city weekend nevertheless…..

    im looking forward to saad haroons show though…..

    funny coz i totally didnt agree. i thought his jokes were really funny especially if one understands the nature of stand up comedy and the little nuances that go with it. an excellent start really. :)

    also funny to notice was that a lot of bloggers were in the audience…huma and saba, sam (www.grapefrooty.blogspot.com), mars (www.post2am.blogspot.com), kay (www.lifemeansdrama.blogspot.com), imtiaz also, myself, and a couple of others also…it IS a small karachi after all!

    the start was excellent…do doubt about that….

    we need mre things like this….

    i think it’ll improve with time…..

    in a small audience of about 100?
    its pretty small..a sprinkle of celeps, a sprinkle of bloggers…..and a bunch of heavy socialites!!!

    and we thought karachi is huge!!
