Alive at 40: A Comedy Special by Anuvab Pal
What is it like to be a 40 year old man in contemporary India? On one side, Indian uncles shouting. On the other side, selfies and snapchat. Anuvab Pal tells us how middle aged Indian men delude themselves into wanting to be younger, and the tragedies that await them. As seen through his life as India’s most senior stand up comedian (pun intended). Also in this autobiographical show, he covers the rise of stand up comedy in India these past 10 years, not the highs but mostly the lows. And sometimes, even lower than that. And through the lens of stand up, a look at contemporary India. Enter the glorious world of stand up comedy and leave knowing it is anything but.
Still, who said tragedy isn't comedy?
