Smart, funny, universal - One to watch out for!
19 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

Now over the last 5-6 years we in India have seen an exponential rise of stand up comics. A lot of them have been good but each brings with themselves some baggage that does not translate universally.

We have seen comics from outfits like AIB & EIC take to stand up along with a lot of the other individual like Biswa Kalyan Rath, Kenny Sebastion, Abish Matthews, etc. But none of their stand up shows really hit the mark. Don't get me wrong - they were funny but just not great funny. They all had parts of their shows that weren't funny because they were either cringe worthy, awkward, not delivered well or they were too regional.

Kanan's show though having some issues was excellent. He is the first Indian comic(besides Vir das) whose show was sublime. His entire show is relatable, his delivery is excellent and I spent most of the show totally impressed with the way he handled himself.

Kanan could have done without the encore joke - which was just nasty and cringe worthy.

An extremely well written and well thought out show. I left the show thinking this show can be up there with the great stand up comedy shows from Hollywood comics.

Looking forward to see more from him.
