A funny turn from the Middle East
Laugh:Drive those lockdown weekend blues away by logging on to an online comedy show by Nitinn Miranni. In the past, the Dubai-based comedian’s routines have had themes including ridiculous airport rules and regulations, the obsession Indian men have with Bangkok, and the more idiosyncratic aspects of his own life. Having honed his skills in Dubai, he has also had to work with a lot of restrictions, which he says has helped him build discipline and not use foul language in his sets. Miranni has performed at comedy festivals around the world and says that he tries to find humour in the most mundane things. You can now watch him perform in the comfort of your own home. Titled Comedy Munch, the show will also feature Kajol Srinivasan with her witty one-liners in an opening act. All you need to do is log in on time and ensure you are watching from a quiet room so that the artistes face minimal disturbance.
Time 8 pm onwards
