Ever wondered how an arranged marriage in India turns out? Well, “The married guy” of stand-up comedy, Amit Tandon, will be delivering some hilarious comic routines for the very first time in Doha, telling you exactly how it turns out. His story is funny. Two children and one marriage later, he realised things couldn’t get any worse and resorted to comedy. He’s unapologetically embarrassing to his children and an annoyance to his wife, like every regular husband, and that’s where his humour stems from. Six years ago he got bored of running his HR consultancy and tried an open-mic night for the first time. Twenty million video views and over 1,000 shows later, Tandon is now one of India’s best-known observational comics. According to him, “The real masala lies in the lives of middle-class Indians. I come from a middle-class family myself and the constant struggles in our homes are hilarious. We are not poor and we will never be rich, for we spend more time in managing the money we have than in earning more!”
The show will connect very well with Doha residents from the Indian sub-continent (and anyone else with a taste for desi humour) as Tandon’s comedy is based on a style of life that almost everyone can relate to. The opening acts include local, upcoming comedians Subeer Josh and Chandrashekar Angadi, too.
His humour is family friendly, so this is a great opportunity to take the whole gang out for a long night of fun, laughter and some self-retrospection even.
