Delhis date with asardar sardars

first_imgSunday evening, it was west Delhi’s turn to hog the limelight. The highlight of the day? A stand-up act called  A’Sardar, which was a comedy gig presented by two most funniest sardars — Maheep Singh and Vikramjit Singh.The performance was a part of the ongoing Atelier ACT Festival which is a workshop of communication enthusiasts who have been organising creative educational programmes and devising socially relevant plays. It has conducted various workshops on creative teaching and creative learning. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting”We are continuously devising and designing specific learning enhancement programmes for special educators and are incorporating creative drama and theatre-in-education techniques,’ said a member of the group.’A’sardar, the word itself has a dual connotation. It refers to asardar (catalyst to change) sardars. Dedicated to the ones who are performing and the ones who are witnessing it. We are sardars but not the usual typical ones,’ said Maheep.His act mostly took a dig at regular mishaps in a Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflixsardar’s life. Like how a sardar is always greeted by specific terms like balle balle or paaji instead of his regular name or how he gets served sarso ka saag and makke ki roti even in an Italian restaurant and how he is much scarier than a scarecrow (toy) to horrify little children to manage them,’ laughed Maheep.Vikramjit’s act on the other hand started with a disclaimer note claiming — the jokes today are offensive but you need not worry since they are in English. He tickled the funny bone with his uncanny yet humourous remarks on fitness freaks seen at gyms, how shopping is not a natural thing (unlike what women call it) which should be solely replaced by lots of sex and food (much natural and pleasurable) and the advertisements on TV.Vikramjit has been doing stand up for over an year now, and says that he derives his punches from the daily problems he deals with in life.’Instead of ruminating over them, I make a joke out of them. Just like how batting comes to Sachin,’ Vikramjit said.’Comedy for me is being in the moment and suit according to the scene. I am a big believer in laughing at oneself. Then only you can succeed in bringing a few laughs,’ Maheep signed off.last_img read more
