We know that one day of the year isn't enough to celebrate half the world's population, but let's make the best of it right? Come treat yourself to a day of laughs with Funtastic Four. This is a comedy event featuring four heroes who all have basically one superpower - To make you laugh till you drop. It is a one-of-a-kind comedy show which promises to tickle your funny bone this Women's Day!

 

Cast:
Pooja Vijay:
the brainchild behind the collective, is a Tamilian who identifies as a Bangalorean, decided to pursue comedy after she realised that she needed a hobby other than Facebook stalking. Through her comedy, she brings a fresh perspective to life as a stutterer (yes, just like the Nescafe ad!), the funny side of being South Indian living in Delhi and her failed attempts at romance. She has performed in multiple cities across India including Hyderabad, Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai and Kochi. She has been featured in leading media platforms such as NDTV, Femina and leading newspapers.

 

Nishant Suri: An engineer turned banking professional turned wedding photographer turned stand-up comedian, Nishant clearly knows what he wants to do in life. He's been doing stand up for a couple of years now, and in this while has won competitions at IIT Delhi, Vir Das's Pyjamafest, Radio One Delhi and Comedy Central's Chucklehunt. He's loud, he's almost always angry and is said to have one of the most weirdly animated hands on the circuit.

 

Seema Rao: Seema Rao Narayan is a part-time Software Engineer, a part-time homemaker and a part-time Comedienne. She is that dhobhi ki kutti who doesn't belong to the ghar or the ghats!!! - which is just a nutsy cover-up for an early onset of midlife crisis, midriff crisis and Laryngitis, which is why she sounds like a cross between Altaf Raja and a mule.

 

Suhas Navratna: Suhas Navaratna possesses a deranged view of life and is a student of Engineering to boot. He identifies himself as a Dysfunctional Hindu, a realist and an alcoholic. His style of Stand-Up Comedy is based on significant religious observations, his failed relationships and his mother tongue.

Jagriti

Jagriti is a Performance Arts space dedicated to Theatre, Music, Dance and Comedy. Founded in 2011 by Arundhati and Jagdish Raja, the space has hosted several productions from India and around the world. A 200-seat theatre, built around a full-thrust stage, it is fully equipped to cater to both artistes and audience. The main stage is designed for intimate performances, with adjoining spaces for informal lectures and gatherings, and an attached restaurant- 'The Fat Chef'. Jagriti is owned and operated by the not-for-profit ART Foundation, a registered charitable trust.

The Rooftop - above the main auditorium is an open-to-sky space with a staging area that can accommodate about 50 people. A raised and walled off platform can work as a perfect area for puppet theatre. The Rooftop has a restroom and a pantry. 

The Terrace - alongside the auditorium, the Terrace can accommodate about 20 people as an informal gathering area.

Lumbini - extending out from the foyer, Lumbini has a stage and an open-to-sky terraced space for about 80 people.
