LOLStars Present Kunal Kamra & Vaibhav Sethia, Kolkata
An advertising junkie by day and comedy man by night, Kunal Kamra has been leading a double life for close to five years now. The comedian once said in an interview, “On stage, I do not believe in drawing a line — that’s reserved for jokes that are unfunny,” a statement true to his style of comedy. His humor channels his unfiltered thoughts and his speeding thinking process points towards the absurdities of life, making him produce one great set after another. The comedian started performing professionally in 2013, with his first ever show at the glorious blueFrog, Mumbai (RIP). The comedian is now a regular at the all the big comedy venues in the country, and has a dedicated fan following (despite him tasing them at this live shows with his witty barbs). His recent show Punchliners presents his jaded view on advertising life, thanks to being overworked and underpaid.
V for Vaibhav, V for variety. From smokers, suicide and solitude, and design of cockroaches and humans, and cats, to vegetarians, pilots and bikers, comedian Vaibhav Sethia’s stand-up sets cover all possible topics with his jokes and stories. He is an ex-Marwari who was banished from the community for being too funny (their stomachs were hurting too much from laughing 24*7). The comedian has performed at all the popular comedy haunts, like the Canvas Laugh Club, and has won popular contests like the Pajama Fest Open-Mic in 2014. The Kolkata-raised, IIT-Rourkee graduate has previously worked as a writer and an assistant director, after he quit his money-minting oil company job. He co-founded Comedified in 2014, with fellow comedian Anirban Dasgupta, Kolkata's most popular comedy group, and was instrumental in starting a comedy scene in the city, leading to as many five open-mics every week, when there were none.
