Global Village Idiot (Trial Show) by Aditi Mittal

Aditi’s new show explores how her place in our global village makes her feel she belongs nowhere and everywhere at the same time. Confusing for someone who’s always been the village idiot, no matter how global it is. A show packed with her trademark ‘acerbic and cutting edge’ comedy and (possibly litigious) parodies of people she’s met along the way.

When you are on your way home after watching this show, there will come a moment when you'll stop mid-way, look back at the evening and tell yourself this, "I learnt nothing today". Rahul Subramanian's comedy solo 'Kal Main Udega' is filled with unrelated topics, no transitions, and inconsequential takes on critical subjects and also a bit of mildly bad dancing. If you are someone who is a fan of comedy with a message, then this show is made for you, only disclaimer being that you will have to come up with a message of your own as Rahul has none to offer. A 60-minute fun ride of jokes which, like the name of the solo, is purely aimed at not making any sense, which coincidentally also happens to be the purpose of life.
