About the Event

Format of the workshop:


The workshop will be an online video interactive session, where participants can bring forth their queries pertaining to the craft of stand-up comedy and questions related to the industry as a whole and Raghav will use his 11 years of being in the funny business to try and find you an answer.

 

Participants are required to prepare a set of questions beforehand, and Raghav promises to answer at least one question from each person, hoping that the diversity in questions may help you find a solution to a problem you don’t even know exists.


The workshop is 90 minutes long
