Love your dose of comedy? Well, be prepared for the overdose this weekend as Kanan Gill and Kenny Sebastian bring you one of a kind live sketch show. It's whacky, it's hilarious and well it's a little sketchy. Need anyone say more?
Kanan Gill - With his razor-sharp wit, Kanan is one of India’s most popular sketch and stand-up comedians in the country. The Mumbai-based comic has performed over a 1000 shows around the world and his recent comedy special, Keep It Real, was received with rave reviews. The man (who was only a boy back then) shot to fame with the hit Pretentious Movie Reviews series, with fellow comedian Biswa Kalyan Rath. He also dabbles in sketch comedy (acted in How Insensitive! and the acclaimed mockumentary Better Life Foundation by Them Boxer Shorts) and stand-up (toured India with two hour-long shows: Feeling with Kanan, and All Correct Opinions). He made his Bollywood debut with the 2017 release, Noor.
Kenny Sebastian - With a great sense of humour touching on everyday topics, a singing voice and a rare ability to make the stiffest faces smirk, Kenny Sebastian has the world at his feet. The Bangalore-based stand-up comedian is arguably one of the biggest comedy acts in the country, creating content fit for both the Internet and the stage. When not directing short films, the comedian is performing at leading venues like Canvas Laugh Factory (Mumbai) and has delivered over 1000 shows around the world. Kenny is one of the forefront members of Bangalore's comedy group- The Polished Bottoms, with comedians Sundeep Rao, Sanjay Manaktala and Praveen Kumar. His Internet prowess is seen in his Amazon special, Don’t be That Guy, along with the sci-fi comedy web series Starboyz, and Comedy Central’s The Living Room. This year, Kenny premiered a new show named 'Die Trying' on Amazon Video and is on the panel of judges for Comicstaan, a nine episode series, to mentor and find India’s next comic sensation! And finally, he has an adoring female fan base as well!
