Comedy has always been the icing on the cake and when it comes to stand up comedy there are a lot of comedians out there to entertain us. To give you sense humour that’s out there, we have curated few best stand-up specials on Amazon Prime. Get set and binge watch to set the quarantine mood right.
Madarasi Da By Aravind SA
Hailing from Mylapore, Chennai, Aravind SA is a proud South Indian. He talks about everything Chennai, its superstitions, traffic policemen, and why the city is the religious, conservative, and virgin capital of the country. He relives the biology class on the reproductive system in his school, which includes a rather creative metaphorical description of coitus, and gives his opinions on NRI relatives and arranged marriage.
Alex In Wonderland By Alexander
Alex takes you on a trip down the memory lane, blending Tamil cinema, music, philosophy, and humour in a heady mix of hope and hilarity. The feel-good show of this multitalented comedian is celebrated by the audience around the world.
Don’t Be That Guy By Kenny Sebastian
Kenny Sebastian is a chill kinda guy who reminisces about the time when he was 19 and gives us a hilarious account of the time he had a photo-shoot with a supermodel. In case you’re unaware, there’s a correct way to open the door for your house-maid; Kenny teaches you how. He talks about why wants to build a dam and call it dam nice and gives us a glimpse of his musical side when he deconstructs an indie song.
Don’t Tell Amma By Sumukhi Suresh
This is Sumukhi Suresh’s first stand up special. She talks about growing up poor in Nagpur but with a rich people resume, the truth about Nutella – Khichdi, and most importantly about her wildcat Amma. She has no plans to tell her Amma about this show and you better not either!
Vicky This Side, Varun That Side By Varun Thakur
Varun Thakur is himself in the first half and his alter ego Vicky Malhotra in the second half, in this unique special. Varun has hilarious takes on Indian TV commercials, teleshopping, and basil leaves, which he believes are the push-up bras of food, and talks about the time he came first in a fancy dress competition. Vicky, meanwhile, is a buff struggling actor from Lokhandwala and is a very pretty handsome dude (he proclaims himself the Indian Brad Pitt).
Biswa Mast Aadmi By Biswa Kalyan Rath
Biswa Kalyan Rath has spent his entire life trying to be cool. In school, he wanted a cool signature. In college, he wanted to start a rock band. The show, in a nutshell, is Biswa taking us through his life. He tells us about his quirky friends, the time he dabbled with basketball. He makes thought-provoking observations about humans, such as why people have a low bar for entertainment and hate gravity. He aims to open a French restaurant someday, and has a name in mind for it.
Keep It Real By Kanan Gill
Kanan Gill doesn’t hold back while making fun of his technologically challenged parents and wholeheartedly admits that he has a smarter and more accomplished older sibling. He compares romantic relationships to a delicately balanced game of Jenga, and talks of a documentary on metal music that is important to him. “Crying is like taking a sh*t for your heart,” he says, as he criticises the social stereotype that men don’t cry.
Kal Main Udega By Rahul Subramanian
Rahul Subramanian is a man of many opinions. He tells us why he thinks the HR department in a corporate organisation is the only department with balls, why SpiceJet air-hostesses are the worst and why Andy Murray is the khap panchayat of the tennis world. He doesn’t think very highly of DJs, and strongly believes that drugs should be permitted in sport. He talks about the time he bought his first car and his struggles with driving, and with the consent of the audience, also indulges in some dark humour.
