The #FreakinHighlarious gets star-struck with the power-girls of the Comedy circuit Jeeya Sethi, Pavitra Shetty, Prashasti Singh & Neeti Palta bringing their ‘Girls Night Out’ home to us this Wednesday night!
About the Artists:
Jeeya believes if you are fat once (by fat she means FAAAAT) you are fat forever, mentally you never become thin even after losing all the weight. An event manager turned stand-up comedian, improviser and actor, she has made entertainment her new life’s mission since nothing else is going for her!
Pavitra Shetty is an undiscovered singer, upcoming stand-up artist and reportedly also a girl. To prove this, she has recently started a tag-team called The Sidechicks providing a disturbing look at what girls with unlimited WiFi connections can do. The biggest inspirations for her stand-up are her Mom, random aunts who keep visiting her place and her very own weighing scale. Already featured multiple times on television and radio, Pavvy is also part of hit Chalta Hai shows Dame Funny and Undateable. And she has an unnaturally high number of best friends who insisted that a new bio was written for her.
Prashasti Singh is yet another IIM graduate searching for meaning outside academic excellence and material achievement. She is one-tenth of the choir group ‘The Etceteras’ and has already won several stand-up competitions on the Mumbai circuit. Between stand-up and Improv she has found space for expressing her small-town sensibilities amidst big town hustle. In the end, it may just turn out to be another Amethi to Andheri story but at least we had some good laughs along the way.
Neeti Palta is just the kind of girl your mother would point to and say “aisi waali nahin chahiye”. She brings to the English Stand Up Comedy scene in India what it sorely lacks – a female perspective. Being amongst the only English female stand ups in the Indian circuit she has the unique advantage of presenting the female point of view on a variety of subjects – the life of a woman in India, Indian parents, uniquely Indian idiosyncrasies, current affairs, daily irritants or whatever topic catches her fancy, while occasionally indulging in a spot of male bashing (Ok, a lot of that).She has done over a 150 shows across Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Jaipur, Udaipur, Hyderabad, Calcutta and Goa.Neeti was voted as the best Stand Up Comic at the Oz Fest and was India’s first Stand Up to perform at Melbourne for the prestigious Melbourne Comedy Festival RAW Finals 2013.She also established one of Delhi’s oldest and most successful comedy outfits -Loony Goons – in which she hosts and performs. It’s a pioneer outfit that flies in the best comedians from all across India to give comedy night a truly complete ‘Indian’ feel.
