**Bhubaneswar:** One group, varied backgrounds coming together igniting the passion for the stand-up comedy culture in the city. First of its kind, this group has reached many heights in the past three years and yet, believe, it’s just the beginning.
Through their hilarious performances and shows that come with a range of experiments from poetry to parody they are giving stand-up comedians a run for their money.
In their latest video, they came together to talk about their home state, except with a song this time titled “Made In Odisha”, that, has not just become a sensation but has already showered them with immense love in terms of lakhs of views, with appreciation pouring in from all across the country and abroad. Bhubaneswar Komedians have ensured their place with their experiments with topics starting from politics to religion to college humour.
This group is not just limited to the two featured comics in the video. Their group is filled with people from different fields. Pujan Patel, a student from KIIT, Alokesh Sinha, a Ravenshaw student, Asit Panigrahi, a lawyer, Jyoti Ranjan Das, a CA, Satyavrat Mohapatra, an engineer- the group boasts of representation from all walks of life.
Their rib-tickling skills have already taken them far and wide in the country, even as performances in leading colleges and institutions of Odisha have become a regular thing for them. They have been recognised not just within the state, but also outside of it. S.P Jain Institute of Management, one of the top 5 B-Schools in India called them for a show last month.
Keep in mind that Mumbai is a city that’s the core of Indian entertainment. Interestingly, they also motivate local talents of Odisha, giving them space and platform in their open mics.
That apart, they have also roped in star personalities like Nishant Tanwar and Manish Tyagi for their shows, giving the people of Bhubaneswar a taste of national comedy in their hometown. It’s high time they started receiving the recognition they very well deserve.
Akash Baghar, one of the two lyrics writer and singers of the video pleads with youngsters to not hesitate giving comedy a go, “We’re a very accepting bunch of people who will always be there to encourage fresh comics. It’s natural to fail at your first attempt. When that happens we’re there to help the best way we can”.
