O for Gaurav Kap(OO)r

I discovered Gaurav Kapoor through one of his epic YouTube videos on Royal Enfield bikes. This video made him quite famous though it also invited some hate comments (the sassy performer went ahead and made a second part on this issue). This witty comedian with a sharp sense of humor is found speaking on topics ranging from smartphones to destination weddings, Lifebuoy soaps, motorcycles and Bollywood in a hilarious tone. He prefers to call himself a storyteller and manages to find light-hearted fun content even in the most mundane things. He was selected to open for the show of international comedy sensation Russel Brand in India.

Kapoor is considered as one of the rising stand-up comedians in the country. His  top-notch performance has already earned him a debut stand-up special show on Amazon Prime called ‘Hahakaar.’

This is the fifteenth post in the Blogchatter A2Z challenge based on the theme ‘Laugh in the time of Corona.’ I will see you tomorrow when I disclose the featured funny man in my post for P.

Author: Sonia Chatterjee

Who am I? An erstwhile banker turned blogger/writer/author. Any qualifications? A Post-Graduate degree in Chemistry followed by a second Post-Graduate Diploma in Management. Currently, I am pursuing a one-year MFA in creative writing course from the Writer's Village University, U.S. Though I must admit that I am still trying to figure out how and when I can connect all these dots. Have I done any real work? If two years in market research, six years in banking as a branch head two-and-a-half years in blogging and publishing a book can be considered as real work, then yes. Where do I live? After spending life like a nomad for sixteen years in Delhi, Bangalore & Mysore, I am back to where it all started from - Kolkata. My favorite things - Books, coffee, travel, food, and my four-and-a-half-year-old son. What is this blog about? Through Sonia's musings, I intend to explore writing in various genres, create social awareness, spread laughter and channelize emotions through words and pictures. Anything for readers? You can check out my book 'Deal of Death' on Amazon Kindle. If you like fast-paced thrillers, this Detective fiction introducing the woman sleuth, Raya Ray could turn out to be your perfect weekend read.

  4. I didn’t know until I started following your series that there are so many stand ups in India. And now I’m so eager to check out all of them. Your series has been very informative for me as far as this genre is concerned.
