Stand Up Comedy Show

A stand up comedy show is taking place at The Basement tonight from 9 PM to 11 PM. Tickets cost Rs.150 each. I went to the show last week, and one of the comics [now if only I could remember his name] was actually quite good. They had a few musical performances, and the boys on the tablas were fantastic! Is worth checking out.

P.S: No, I am not being paid to advertise The Basement.

    I read “boys on the tables were fantastic” instead of tablas….

    Sorry I am sleepy after a heavy lunch….

    “P.S: No, I am not being paid to advertise The Basement.”

    Thanks. I was starting to get suspicious.

    One of the boys on the tabla was: Yasir Qureshi who plays tambuka for a band called A.D.P. Yasir’s claim to fame: his title ‘Al-Fatah’ on the airwaves of CityFM89.

    P.S. I am not being paid to advertise Yasir either! :)

    Zain – coincidentally I too read it as BOYS ON TABLES – I had even started writing a hilarious comment about a strip club called The Basement. It would have then be breaking news.

    And I had this after a light dinner, gosh what I may start reading after a heavy greasy dinner :)

    Was it me what?

    Was it me on a table? If that is how you want to visualise me, on a table in a strip-club then knock yourself out. I can even put on a G-string for you to put…well we don’t have 5 rupee notes anymore. I guess you can put coins in it. They can collect in the crotch area and jingle-jangle as I gyrate on table-tops.

    This is why I shouldn’t post comments at this time.

    Anyone go to the show? I couldn’t make it and am curious about the performances.

    sami…….im sure such a club would do decntly well in quetta and peshawar regions….not to mention the requests for “personal shows”….

    but u can hold “it” right there for the moment…..

    If you are interested in doing a whole enterprise based on the great idea…draw up a business plan, maybe we can fund u…[:P]
