The WeirdassHAMateur Night feat. The Cardinal Bengans
They are India’ first improvisational comedy troupe. No script, no rehearsal, pure madness, on the spot. Improvisational comedy involves using techniques to perform spontaneously and humourously. These techniques can be anything from playing out games which make the performers create characters, songs, situations, dialogues and scientific laws spontaneously, accepting suggestions and participation from the audience to do the above, to just forgetting your lines in a play and singing out nursery rhymes instead. This art form has risen to fame with the likes of ‘ Whose Line is it Anyway?’. The Bengans are the first ones to do it for Indian audiences, with Indian content. Their games are original, and their faces are pretty. The troop includes VIR DAS, ROHAN JOSHI, ANU MENON, ASHWIN MUSHRAN, PADMINI, KAVI SHASTRI
Catch it on Sunday at Bluefrog between 8:00 and 11:00 pm on Sunday night.
