As venues are slowly opening up in the city, Mumbaikars can finally get out of their houses and have asocial life again –after taking all the necessary precautions, of course. While diners are snapping up restaurant tables, there is also an option for those who miss attending live gigs. Although there have been many gigs online recently, live shows are a different kind of experience. As it happens, several venues in the city are hosting comedy gigs by some of the most popular comedians from Mumbai and the rest of India. 

Here are five shows you could attend this weekend, if you are looking to have a good laugh with your friends. 

Fun times 
Mumbai-based comedian Vaibhav Sethia will look to tickle your funny bone at his new show titled ‘Apple Is Red’. The one-hour special comes on the back of two shows, ‘This One Time’ and ‘DONT’ and months after many comedians in the city have been able to perform for a live audience in the city. All attendees are expected to follow basic social distancing and Covid-19 protocols at the venue. Tickets for the show with only 20 seats can be booked on BookMyShow.

If Bandra seems too far, stop over at Khar and listen to Abhijit Ganguly. The city-based comedian will perform his set ‘Still Standing’ which delves into his experiences during lockdown, turning 30 and married life too, with a promise to make you laugh out loud.
